The Flagler County Public Library is once again hosting technology classes to the Palm Coast branch.

The classes will cover mobile technology and computer classes, focusing on teaching and improving the skills needed to keep in touch remotely, according to a press release from Flagler County. The first class will be on Feb. 1 and residents are only required to signup in advance for the computer-based classes because of space limitations.

Chief of Special Projects and Library Director Holly Albanese said they are happy to have these classes, since the skills are more universal, post-pandemic.

“We learned the value and necessity of staying connected with one another during the pandemic, and the way we interact has changed,” Albanese said. “There now seems to be a universal expectation that everyone has some level of technical ability.”

Most classes are held 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. on Tuesdays, but there are some classes offered from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Wednesdays.

The mobile-technology classes do not require advanced signup as participants must bring their own smart phone or tablet, the press release said. Signup for the computer classes can be done up to one month before the class date.

Classes are typically limited to six, but couples usually have allowances because they can share, Saloom said.

The full class schedules are available online and at the library's Palm Coast branch at 2500 Palm Coast Parkway, the press release said.
