Want to make a connection? In February, the library is offering several classes that show users how to understand and utilize social mediums like Facebook and Twitter.

Come to the Facebook Basics and Beyond session to learn how to use this popular social media. A technology librarian will go over some privacy settings and show you how you can connect and stay connected with friends, family and organizations. Join us on Friday, Feb. 12 at 11 a.m.

On Saturday, Feb. 20, at 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. you can learn about Pinterest, a social media that helps you organize the things you find online. Learn to navigate the Pinterest interface and understand how your online finds (or pins) are shared and followed.

Can you really get all of your news in 140 characters? Find out how Twitter is used by its many followers and tweeters to stay up on the news, stay current in their career or simply connect with friends and family. Class begins at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 23.

All classes for adults are held in the Library’s Computer Lab on the second floor. Classes are free, but space is limited to 10 people per program, so patrons should register early. Visit www.icpl.org/classes to register online. You can also register by calling the Library at 319-356-5200.
