Do any of these sound like you?

  • I have a Facebook account, but I’m concerned about privacy
  • I want to share photos with my family, but I forget how
  • I’d like to video chat for free with my loved ones, but I’m not sure how

If so, join this free workshop covering the basics of major digital communications tools and social media platforms. The course will be followed by a drop-in Q&A session where you can bring your device to receive one-on-one assistance with any questions or concerns. We’re happy to help.
