Did you know you can use your business library card to register employees for computer and technology classes? (Please note registration is limited to the three authorized users of your business library card.) Perhaps they need a refresher on how to create a power point, or understand the ins and outs of specific social media resources. Your library can be a resource for training purposes, check out the complete list of Computer and Technology classes offered every month. They do fill up fast though, so register early! Of course, we always have great Business Programs geared toward the business owner as well.
