Come to the library and learn how to set up an account, send an email, how to attach documents and more.  These two classes are sure to help you "take control" or at least make you more comfortable using your computer.  Don't miss these classes if your computer has the upper hand in your house!  Registration is required so call 281-492-8592 to reserve you spot.  Hope to see you there.
