Classes will be open to the public and will focus on two areas: 1) general computer literacy, including computer, interact, and email b~flcs, an d2) ~ specific:to job searching and applying for work online. Both of these skill sets have been proven effec- tive in finding and keeping a CHECK ff job. All classes will be held in the Kyie Community Library, from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m., starting Tuesday, Jan. 18 and ending the following Monday, Jan. 24. (No classes will be held on the weekend.) The classes are made pos- sible by the Digital Literacy Corps, a program implement- ed by the Central Texas Library System (CTLS) in partnership with 28 public libraries in central Texas.
