The Perry County District Library has partnered with the non-profit tech group Connect Ohio to offer free basic computer and Internet training.
The program is geared toward first time computer and broadband users.
Library director Melissa Marlot says the program teaches adults about basic computer, Internet, and email use.
"We go over the different components of a web page and the address bar and how to use it, how to use Google, and the differences between the different search engines, that kind of thing," said Marlot.
Those who complete the course are eligible to receive home broadband service specials.
Marlot says the participants have been pleased with the outcome.
"Typically they're satisfied," said Marlot. "Right now we're offering a promotion, where if they complete all three of the Connect Ohio classes, they get a refurbished computer for a discounted price, so they're really happy about that."
April and May classes are forming, participants can register by calling 740-342-4194.
