The Santa Ana Library has just been awarded the “Digitizing Yourself into the Internet Community” grant by the Library Services Technology Act. This grant will enable the Library to expand its offering of basic computer classes with brand new courses taught by experts. These classes will help patrons build the skills necessary to participate in the digital age.
Santa Ana residents who wish to network with family and friends, edit images, share photos and videos online, and publish written content to the web can sign up now! While pursuing personal goals, all participants will have the opportunity to meet with business owners and individuals in need of web services, gaining both experience and career networking connections.
We can’t do it without volunteers! Applications are now being accepted for computer-savvy college students and recent graduates to teach classes. Participation as an instructor offers great resume-building activities in a nationally-recognized program. Volunteer instructors will develop their technical skills and gain valuable teaching experience.
