Derry library hosts Technology Thursdays

DERRY — Do you know someone who needs help using computers? Do you feel like the “technology train” has left you behind? Do you know someone who is unemployed and needs help with basic computer skills?

Derry Public Library has begun offering classes and drop-in times for people who find themselves “technologically challenged.” An ongoing series of Technology Thursdays might be just the thing to help you get over your fear of computers, or give you that extra know-how to help you enjoy your computer or new device.

From basic computer classes for real beginners, to help with writing a great resume, to letting you try out some cool devices, the library is offering something for everyone. There are also drop-in times where library staff can provide individual instruction based on your needs. The library will provide the computers, participants bring the questions.

On Thursday, Oct. 17, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., learn about Basic Resumes. Create a great-looking resume using template and get other resume tips for success.

On Thursday, oct. 24, from 6:30 to 8 p.m., check out the Device Petting Zoo: Try an iPad, Kindle, and Nook.”

Students will ‘Drop, Cover and Hold’

On Oct. 17 at 10:17 a.m. the Great Northeast ShakeOut will be held. At that time, all schools and child care programs throughout the Northeast will Drop, Cover and Hold.

Damaging earthquakes may occur anywhere in New Hampshire at any time with no warning, as evidenced by the quake last Thursday evening.

New Hampshire is the most seismically active state in the New England. The ShakeOut is a chance to practice how to protect yourselves. During an earthquake you have only seconds to respond and to do so you must practice.

North Londonderry Elementary is one of the local schools participating.
