The Sylva library will host a class on building a website at 5:45 p.m. Oct. 22 and another course on how to sell items on Craigslist.com at 5:45 p.m. Oct. 24
The classes are the first of a new series of Monday evening computer skills courses that the library is hosting. Each class is a 90-minute stand-alone session dealing with a different topic.
For both of these classes, participants must have basic computer skills including: keyboarding, the ability to cut and paste text, and the ability to open and close active computer windows. An email account is also required.
The Build Your Own Website class will teach students how to create their own website using WordPress.com, a free hosting service.
The Oct. 24 class on Craigslist will focus on how to upload photos to the site, how to enter and edit the description, and how to respond to offers and inquiries. Attendees are encouraged to bring an electronic photo of the item they wish to sell. During class, they will write and post the ad.
The classes will be held in the Library’s Computer Lab and is limited to 15 people.
