Free adult literacy, computer and Internet classes offered in Greenbrier

Free adult digital literacy classes will be held at the Greenbrier Public Library on April 10. Each class will last one hour, and computer and Internet FAQ classes will be held at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., and noon. There is a limit of four students for each one-hour class, and each student is provided with a computer to use during class.

 

Connect Arkansas, a project of Arkansas Capital Corporation, received federal stimulus grants to increase Internet awareness, education and use in Arkansas. As part of that grant, Connect Arkansas launched the Adult Digital Literacy Program. More than 50 classes are scheduled for April throughout Arkansas.

“The Internet has become an integral part of life, and Arkansans deserve every opportunity to participate,” said Sam Walls III, president of Connect Arkansas.

“By educating the adults in our communities, we are setting them up to be able to communicate with and stay connected to their families, friends, healthcare professionals and communities more efficiently and effectively.”

The Faulkner County library in Greenbrier is open 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday. Library cards are easy to order with a photo ID and proof of residency.

The library is located on Wilson Farm Road, next to City Hall.
