Seniors


The Library, Arts & Culture Department welcomes community Seniors!

Quick Links

The Library received a grant of computers from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation in 1999. We began training Glendale residents in the use of computers and the Internet that year, and developed an extended class format for Seniors in 2000. To date, over 600 Glendale Seniors have participated in the Computer Club.

Senior workshops are comfortably paced for the novice computer user. Students learn how to use the mouse and keyboard, navigate through Microsoft Windows, search the Internet, and set up and use Email.

Workshop Information - Computer Club for Beginners

Sign up at the Reference Desk at the Central Library, or ask your Branch Librarian. Bi-monthly sessions available throughout the year. Learn to use computers, search the Internet, set up a free Email account, and more in a comfortably paced workshop.

Computer Club: Participants from the Library's Internet workshops are invited to participate in the Computer Club every Monday from 10:00 a.m. to 12 p.m.
