Computer Classes

The library offers free computer classes on Monday evenings, Wednesday mornings and afternoons, and alternating Saturday mornings. Learn how to use tools like Microsoft Word and Excel, or learn how to pin things using Pinterest!

Starting in 2020, we began offering computer classes at the Clarksville Branch Library in addition to the main library! Clarksville classes will be held in Meeting Room A and Jeffersonville classes will be held in the Gates Computer Lab unless otherwise noted. Due to the limited space, registration is required. You can register by calling Stuart Jones at (812) 285–8600 or clicking on the title of the class you’re interested in attending.
