Teen Laptop Classes

Yesterday's laptop classes ended the second month of our Teen Laptop Class series.  The classes are going to continue through August.  Our topic was "Google Translator" www.google.com.  It was a great learning experience!  We learned how to translate words and sentences into numerous languages.  Some languages even let us hear how to pronounce what we typed in!   

Watch our calendar for our classes in April.  If you have any ideas for future classes, talk to Branch Librarian Stephanie or Circulation Assistant Hugo.
