Beginner Email Class / Clases de Correo Electrónico para Principiantes

Computer helpWe see a lot of people at the library applying for jobs online. It seems like every online job application requires an email address.  Doctor’s offices, insurance companies, and utility companies also ask for email addresses so that they can communicate with customers. If you still don’t have an email address and you think you might need one, you are invited to attend one of our basic-level email classes next week. There will be one on Monday, March 20, 5:00-7:00 pm, in Spanish and one on Tuesday, March 21, 5:00-7:00 pm, in both English and Spanish.
