As the new year has begun to unfold and New Year’s resolutions are written, the Sevier County Public Library System (SCPLS) has created two monthly programs that can assist those with desires to complete specific resolutions, such as gaining computer skills.
In fact, computer classes are available each month at the three branches of the SCPLS. Each branch offers monthly computer classes and one-on-one computer help free of charge to the public. Pre-registration is required to reserve a space for classes due to limited seating at all locations.
The Seymour Branch Library will host a computer basics class on Feb. 1 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. This class will focus on the foundations of using computers, such as the various parts of the computer and understanding various icons. Sarah McBride, manager of the Seymour Branch Library, explained the computer basics class is geared toward those without a lot of computer experience, but the class does not hinge on age.
“It’s open to everyone,” said McBride. “We don’t try to limit it, even if you’re young or old. Everyone is welcome.”
The computer basics class will take place once a month every other month. On the months when the computer basics class is not offered, the Seymour Branch Library hosts a class on computer basics in regards to internet use. The class will cover aspects of writing emails, using email, using the internet and more.
Those interested can call the Seymour Branch Library in advance to register for the free course at 573-0728. For more information about the computer class schedule, visit the library’s website at
The Seymour Branch Library is located at 137 W. Macon Ln.
