Are you wondering what you’re missing by not jumping into social media?  Are you curious about all  this online tech and their apps?  Are you asking yourself right now what an app is?  Well, Tri-Tech Computer Skills classes offered at the Fremont, Newark and Union City Libraries will help to answer some of those questions for you.  Every month, the schedule of classes changes at each library and range from basic Microsoft applications to general hands-on information about various social media software.   Since all the classes are hands-on, space is limited and registration is required.  If you miss a class you’ll find it will be offered again at one of the three libraries.
