ICPL announces July Classes for Adults

by on July 1st, 2014

The Iowa City Public Library is so much more than books; it’s online music, genealogy resources, and online language learning systems! Register for our July adult classes to learn more about these programs.

Do you want to start a project tracing your family lineage? Join us Friday, July 11, from 10 to 11 a.m. or Saturday, July 19, from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. for our Introduction to Genealogy class. Learn about the Library’s free subscriptions to Ancestry.com, HeritageQuest, and Newspaper Archive. A librarian will show you how each of these resources can make finding your ancestors easier.GenealogyTreeB-W_JPG300

Join us on Tuesday, July 15, from 10 to 11 a.m. and learn the difference between online music providers Spotify, Google Play, Soundcloud, and the Iowa City Public Library’s own Online Music Project. The Introduction to Music Online class discusses the difference between streaming and downloading music. Participants will also find out how to make a playlist and share music on a social media site or embed it on a blog.

Learning a language? Tracking stocks? Investigating local Iowa City history? The library has an online resource you can use to do all of these things. Come to the Library Friday, July 25, from 10 to 11 a.m. for a demonstration of the library’s best kept secret – our databases.

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.
