Persons wishing to improve their information technology skills can now take advantage of a free computer course at the George Town Public Library. Offered in partnership with Micro Matrix Principal Sandra Catron, the 12-week course will begin at 10:15 a.m. on Saturday, 5 March. Classes are scheduled to run for two hours every Saturday. Titled Computer Basics Foundation, the course covers a wide range of areas including general information technology concepts, the Internet, Outlook and Microsoft Office. "It's ideal for beginners and aims to equip participants with essential skills for lifelong learning and personal development," Community Librarian Deborah Powery-Zureigat explained. "We know that times are difficult, so we're happy to partner with generous people like Ms. Catron and positively serve our community." Adding her thanks, Cayman Islands Public Library Service Acting Director Juliet Lawson noted, "I applaud Ms. Catron for her spirit of voluntarism is facilitating this essential training to the community. "Information Technology has revolutionised every facet of society and it is a fundamental skill for every individual. Participants will therefore, reap remarkable benefits from this programme." Delighted to partner with the library on this initiative Ms. Catron commented, "Computer skills are extremely important so anything that we can do to assist people in acquiring that additional knowledge is very important. I'm sure that many people will take advantage of this wonderful opportunity." Spaces are limited however, as only 10 places are available for this first class. Interested persons are therefore encouraged to register as soon as possible, using forms available from reception at the George Town Public Library. On completion participants who attend each class, participate in homework assignments, and pass the course assessment at the end of the twelfth week will receive a completion certificate. Free handbooks and refreshments will also be provided. For more information, email Mrs. Powery-Zureigat at or call her on 949-5159. (GIS)
