CAMP VERDE - Let's face it. If you don't do computers these days, you miss out on a lot.

Over the last few years, the Camp Verde Library has tried to fill the void for many people who don't have access to computers or the Internet by providing public access through a bank of computers at the library and a wireless Internet connection for those who have one but have no Internet service.

This month, the library is taking the program one step further by offering free adult computer literacy and training programs designed to bring those who have never dealt with them, up to speed.

Beginning on Thursday, Jan. 24, they will offer a basic computer course that will cover things as simple as turning on the computer, working on a desktop, personalizing the computer and working with programs.

On Feb. 1, they will offer a second level basics course that will teach how to work with files, folders, storage devices and how to cut, copy and paste text and images.

The basics courses will be followed by ones on accessing and browsing the Internet, using the library's cataloging and website data bases, evaluating websites and a final one on using email and attachments.

For a complete schedule contact the Camp Verde Library at (928) 554-8380.

Beginning on Feb. 6, the library will also begin a Brown Bag Lunch program where you can learn about a variety of subjects such as growing sprouts and researching genealogy coming in March.

Experts in the subject will teach the courses from noon to 1 p.m., on the first Wednesday of every month. Pack a lunch and drop in. There is no need to register.

Verde Valley Community Hospice will also begin a five-session course on bereavement and dealing with grief, next month. The dates have yet to be set, but if you are interested, give the library a call.

Starting in April the library will begin participating in a statewide book project called The Big Read.

The first one will be on John Steinbeck's classic, "The Grapes of Wrath."

"It will be a community discussion on the book and how it may be relevant to today. There are many folks still around for which the Great Depression defined their lives. It will be a chance to get their perspectives also," said library specialist Gerry Laurito.

The Camp Verde library is open Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
