ICPL announces December Classes for Adults

by Meredith Hines-Dochterman on November 24th, 2015

December’s computer classes for adults at the Iowa City Public Library will tackle popular social media sites Facebook and Twitter.

Our Facebook Basics and Beyond class will discuss the Facebook interface, go over privacy settings, and help attendees get a feel for how to connect and stay connected with friends, family and organizations. This class will be held from 2 to 3 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 3.

Adults who have a Twitter account, or are thinking about getting one, should attend our Twitter Basics and Beyond class from 10 to 11 a.m. Tuesday, Dec. 8. This session will show attendees how Twitter is used by followers and tweeters to stay up on the news, stay current in their career, or simply connect with friends and family. We’ll go over the Twitter interface and privacy settings, too.

All classes for adults are held in the Library’s Computer Lab on the second floor. Classes are free, but space is limited to 15 people per program, so patrons should register early.

Visit to register online. You can also register by calling the Library at 319-356-5200.

The Library recently launched a contest to reach 5,000 likes by February 14: Valentine’s Day.

“This is more than a contest,’” says Kara Logsden, the Library’s community and access services coordinator. “Our Facebook page has the Library’s latest news, program information, and book recommendations. We want our patrons to know what’s happening at their Library.”

But it should be fun, too. If the Library reaches its goal of 5,000 likes by Valentine’s Day, one Facebook friend will receive an ICPL prize package, which includes a T-Shirt, tote bag, and pencils.

One winner will be chosen at random. Individuals who are already Facebook fans will be included in the drawing.
