Offered by the Literacy Society of the North Okanagan, the workshops are scheduled to run Saturdays from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Nov. 4, 18 and 25 at the People Place.

The workshops will be small groups and will be scheduled regularly based on demand. There is a $60 fee for the two hour session and participants can register at the Literacy Society office in unit #303 on 3402-27th Avenue, or access the form online at www.literacysociety.ca. The workshops must be pre-paid and registrants are required to bring their own devices.

In addition to the workshops, the Society partners with the Okanagan Regional Library to provide free one-hour technical tutoring for adults on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Vernon Branch.

Adults needing basic assistance in learning to use their devices can sign up for a one-on-one session with a volunteer tutor by visiting the library resource desk upstairs or by calling 250.542.7610. Ext. 6820.

If you would like to be a volunteer tutor with the program, contact the Computer Support Coordinator at 250.275.3117 or email computersupport@literacysociety.ca
