Upcoming workshops include:
► Basics in Excel - Part 1: Monday, May 11, 10:30 a.m. to noon - Have long lists of numbers or information that need taming or calculating? A spreadsheet can help. We’ll help you explore and understand the parts of the spreadsheet, basic formulas, basic formatting, and editing.
► Basics in Excel - Part 2: Monday, May 18, 10:30 a.m. to noon - Spreadsheets do much more than crunch numbers. Join us to learn about Excel’s database functionality, creating charts and graphs, and creating formulas more efficiently on the run.
► Basics in Publisher: Monday, June 1, 10:30 to noon - Have a quick project, such as creating a sign or business card? Need to whip up a quick brochure? You might want to create your project in Publisher. Microsoft Publisher is a desktop publishing program which makes creating signs, cards, banners, brochures, business cards, and other types of documents a quick task, not a chore.
► Working with Facebook:  Monday, June 8, 5:30-7:00 p.m. – As one of the most popular social networking tools on the Internet, Facebook is a great tool for finding, connecting and communicating with friends old and new.  We’ll explore the many aspects of Facebook, while pointing out important features to keep your information safe and private.  This workshop requires that you have already signed up for an e-mail and Facebook account.  If you need assistance creating accounts, please refer to our “Creating an E-mail Account” and “Creating a Facebook Account” brochures.
► Basics in PowerPoint: Monday, June 15, 10:30 a.m. to noon - If you have information that needs to be communicated effectively in a staff meeting, to a class, or just need information on display, consider using PowerPoint.

We’ll guide you through slide manipulation, object use, transitions, and helpful hints for creating an effective presentation.
► Working with E-mail: Monday, June 22, 5:30-7 p.m. - E-mailing has become an important tool in today’s communication, both at home and at work.  Together we will go over the basic skills necessary to send and receive e-mails, and other common tasks.  All examples are done in Yahoo! mail.
