Kimball Library News 11/21/16

AN HOUR OF CODE: The hour of code is a family event coming to Kimball Library via the Sylvan Center in Salem, NH as part of a movement to enrich and educate during National Computer Science Week.  You'll be virtually joining other students all over the world. Your school age child will learn some computer programming through fun and engaging activities.  Join Sylvan and Kimball Library for the movement by registering youth in kindergarten and up and coming to this 'BYOD Hour of Code' event on Tuesday, December 6, from 6:15-7:15pm.

There will be a total of 14 computers available from the library and Sylvan, so if you have any device or gadget that you can use to connect to our public Wi-Fi, and you prefer to use it, please bring it.  This will leave those for the less fortunate 'device-less' youth to use. (BYOD=BRING YOUR OWN DEVICE if you like)

This event is being held in partnership with 'Sylvan of Salem'. You can visit their website at

INTRO TO COMPUTERS: Join us for an introductory computer class.  These classes are geared to individuals who have little to no computer experience. The classes will meet 2x (back to back Wednesday afternoons) and will cover the basics to getting started with computers. Participants do not need to have a computer at home although access to a computer is helpful.  This class is offered in a small group setting (2 – 5 per class) and participants will be using the library laptop computers.

Lesson one on Wednesday, December 7th will introduce the basics such as: how to use a keyboard and mouse, basic computer concepts such as resizing and navigating toolbars, windows, and menus and file management (creating and opening files and folders) as well as learning the basics in Microsoft Word.

Lesson two, on Wednesday, December 14th will continue learning the basic ins and outs of Microsoft Word.
