UNC’s School of Information and Library Science and the Carrboro Cybrary, Chapel Hill Public Library, and Durham Public Library have teamed up to provide a series of workshops on computer skills.

For the past 11 years, the Community Workshop Series (fondly called “CWS”) has offered basic technology and computer classes at three local public libraries. Teachers are volunteers from UNC SILS, other departments at UNC, and the wider Chapel Hill community. Classes are free to the general public and range from Microsoft Word basics to creating Facebook profiles.

Creating digitally literate citizens directly aligns with UNC’s mission to increase the quality of life of our local community. We are excited to have you join us!

If you are interested, please sign up ahead of time by contacting the individual libraries.
