More computer classes coming to local libraries, plus literary discussion groups

For those of us who do not have ready access to a fifth-grader – and thus are lost in the ever-deepening thickets of technological innovation – the Pierce County Library System is conducting another series of FREE tutorials on a variety of computer topics.

 I have observed these sessions in the past, and they are substantive and well-attended.  -BAS.
