The Iowa City Public Library will be holding computer classes for adult learners this October. The classes will cover an array of topics, including internet safety and the physical mechanics of computers. Four classes are to be offered, starting today, Oct. 7, and running through Oct. 30. Class times vary to accommodate differing work schedules, and early registration is encouraged as classes may fill up easily due to limited availability.

Jennifer Eilers, the coordinator for the ICPL classes, explained why the library chose to offer these courses. “The internet can be an intimidating and complex place, and knowing what to be careful of and what not to worry about can give individuals the ability to feel confident using it and engaging with it,” she said. “We hope that these classes can be a first step for many in the community to become the internet users they desire to be.”
