August classes at the Iowa City Public Library are all about being social. The Center and the Library are teaming up to offer beginner and intermediate classes for Facebook and Pinterest.
Our beginners’ class will be held at 10 a.m. Friday, Aug. 5, at the Senior Center with Facebook Basics and Beyond. Participants will discuss the Facebook interface, go over privacy settings, and get a feel for how they can connect and stay connected to friends and family.
What is Pinterest? is the second social media class being offered with the beginner user in mind. Join us at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 13, in the Computer Lab at the Library. Check out how Pinterest is used by learning to navigate the interface and understand how pins are shared and followed.
To follow-up on this class, users can also take the intermediate class, Pinterest Tips and Tricks, which will also be held at 12:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 13. Discover how to organize and use your Pinterest account to the fullest potential!
Facebook Tips and Tricks is the new intermediate class that is being offered twice in August. Come and learn how to get control of your timeline and home feed. Find new ways to connect on Facebook by creating an event or group. Classes will be held at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 16, at The Center and 2 p.m. Monday, Aug. 29, at the Library.
Classes will be held in the Computer Lab on the second floor of the Library and in room 208 at the Senior Center. Classes are taught by an ICPL librarian. Classes are free, but space is limited, so patrons should register early.
