Kent Free Library has free computer classes that offer the opportunity to learn how to use computers and different software programs. Classes on Wednesdays from 2 to 3:30 p.m. in January will focus on basic computer skills, such as using the mouse (Jan. 9), opening and closing programs (Jan. 16), and getting on the Internet and finding websites (Jan. 23).
On Thursdays from 7 to 8:30 p.m. in January, attendees will get an orientation to popular Microsoft Office 2010 programs: Microsoft Word on Jan. 10, Microsoft Publisher on Jan. 17, and Microsoft Excel on Jan. 24.
No registration is necessary; those interested should go to the computer lab no more than one-half hour before each session for a boarding pass. Space is limited.
