Celebrate National Bike Month with Westerly Library and Wilcox Park!  Bring your bike to the library.  A weathered mechanic will teach you how to fix it up yourself.  The first hour will cover basic maintenance and mechanics of the bike in a show-and-tell format.  The second hour will be an open shop where you will be able to work on your own bike with help and guidance.  You're encouraged to attend the whole time.  Happy riding!

Internet Basics 1 - Navigation

The internet is one of the most powerful tools that we use in our everyday lives.  From streaming videos, to doing research, to keeping in touch with our family, it touches all parts of our life, and is a constant companion that it seems like everyone else just assumes you know how to use.  When you don't know what they mean, come see us, and we'll help you get caught up.

 In this course, we'll learn about the parts of some common internet browsers, search engines, and websites, and also discuss safe and unsafe browsing habits.
