Senior citizens interested in learning about computers can register for a variety of classes offered by the Putnam County Office for the Aging at the Putnam Valley Senior Center, 117 Town Park Lane, Putnam Valley, and the Koehler Senior Center, 180 Route 6, in Mahopac.
The next registration will be held on Feb. 7 in Putnam Valley from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. and in Mahopac from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. Putnam County residents will be placed in classes on a first-come, first-served basis, and others will be placed as space allows.
Classes being offered are Computer Fundamentals, Maintaining Your Computer, Internet and Email, Digital Photography, and many more. New this season is a class for ipads in Putnam Valley. Those who received a tablet for Christmas can get help setting it up. There are also free workshops such as How to Buy a New Computer, Copy and Paste, Word Processing, Keyboard Shortcuts, iTunes, Windows Explorer and moving pictures from your camera into your computer. Suggestions for other workshops are always welcome.
Anyone age 55 or over with even a minimum of computer skills is encouraged to become a volunteer in the program. Coaches to assist in classes are always needed, especially in the Computer Fundamentals classes.
