The Boulder Junction Public Library, in partnership with Generations on Line, is offering a free Sip & Swipe Café tutorial program for anyone wanting to become more comfortable and confident using Android tablets and iPads to get online and explore the world wide web. Cafes will be held from 10:30 a.m. to noon on Thursdays, Feb. 20 and 27 and March 5 at the Boulder Junction Community Center.
At the Sip & Swipe Café, participants will be encouraged to “sip” (grab a coffee or other beverage) and “swipe” (the way fingertips are used to operate a tablet). A friendly, knowledgeable, and patient coach will work with participants, provide support and answer questions. The library provides the tablets to use during the classes; however, if participants have their own tablet, they’ll want to bring it.
The Sip & Swipe Café program will guide learners through a series of hands-on, interactive, step-by-step instructions. Those new to tablets will learn basic tablet skills such as tapping, swiping, and scrolling. Through a series of classes, all will learn tablet use such as email, searching, FaceTime, YouTube, texting, photographs and other apps.
Registration will be required, and class size is limited. This free program is provided through a grant from Bader Philanthropies. For questions, call the library at 715-385-2050.
