Hurstville Library's free Internet classes a winner with the public
24 May 2005
The free classes ran for approximately 90 minutes with class sizes limited to eight participants.
The first week's classes, a ‘Beginner's Guide to the Internet', were run in conjunction with the statewide public library promotion connect@yourlibrary
The second week's classes, An introduction to Email', were conducted as part of Council's Seniors Week activities.
“These free introductory Internet classes provide the community with an excellent opportunity to keep up with today's technology,” said Hurstville Mayor, Clr Joanne Morris.
“The small class sizes allow the library staff to guide the participants in stress free surroundings. The classes also fulfil both the library and council's vision of supporting lifelong learning.”
Participants found the classes very informative and expressed a desire to attend further classes.
With over 100 names on the waiting list, further free computer classes will be offered by the Library in the near future.
