During the month of June, the Wareham Free Library will host several stand-alone technology classes alongside a drop-in session for those looking for help accessing the library’s digital resources.

On Monday, June 6, head to the Main Library at 10:30 a.m. to learn how to research genealogy through the Ancestry Library Edition database. 

Also at the Main Library, patrons can learn how to use various Google applications through a Gmail account at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, June 27.

As the Spinney Library will reopen in June, the library’s introductory technology classes will be held at the Onset branch on Thursdays at 3:30 p.m. On June 9, learn to use email; on the 23, learn how to organize files and folders; and on June 30, learn to use Microsoft word.

Space in these classes is limited to four students, and registration is required. Laptops will be provided by the library during the classes.
