We offer a variety of computer instruction opportunities for beginners. Computer classes and Tech Tutoring are held at the Cedar Mill Library. Both Cedar Mill and Bethany have weekly Open Computer Labs.

Cedar Mill Library and Bethany Library offer drop-in assistance with basic tech skills every week during Open Lab.

Additionally, Cedar Mill Library offers Tech Tutoring by appointment.

Classes are offered several times during the year. Registration is required for computer classes except where noted. Space in each class is limited. If you are interested in a class please call or visit the library.

Imaginative Approaches to Photography Workshop

If you enjoy taking photos but want to start making more creative images you should consider attending this workshop. It will explore how to combine photography basics and art fundamentals to make images that reflect your vision with any camera.

Family and Holiday Photography Workshop

If you have struggled to get a photo of family members smiling happily under the tree, here’s your chance to come up with some new ways to do it. The workshop will cover how to use light to create classic portraits and compositions, as well as how to create a vintage look with an app. Registration begins October 21st.

Explore the Creative Art of Photography

This grant-funded digital photography workshop was a tremendous success. The library hosted a culminating event showcasing the photography created during the 8-week workshop. We hope to offer this class again in the future!

Technology Learning Resources

These free resources are great for beginners and job seekers, and help with everything from learning to use a mouse to coding.
