Computer Classes for Your Job and Career at Anoka County Library

Date: Jul 17th, 2013

Are you interested in improving your computer skills?  Our mobile laptop lab will be at Mississippi Library in August, and Anoka County Library is presenting a wide variety of hands on computer classes to help you learn the computer skills you need for your job and career.  Mississippi Library is located at 410 Mississippi Street in Fridley.

“If you don’t have computer skills, this is a great way to become accustomed to the tools of nearly every trade these days,” said Anoka County Commissioner Robyn West.

Classes are free to participants but space is limited.  Registration is required for all classes.

“Computer skills are a necessity in today’s job market,” said Library Board President Bob Thistle.  “Take advantage of these free classes to sharpen your skills, presented at a convenient location – your neighborhood library.”
