IOWA CITY (KWWL) -

Computer classes will soon be offered to seniors in the Iowa City Community.

This summer, the Iowa City Public Library and the Iowa City/Johnson County Senior Center joined together to offer computer classes to seniors in the Iowa City community.

The classes will be taught by an ICPL librarian at the Johnson County Senior Center starting July 17.

Participants will learn how to protect their privacy and safety when online or using social media.

The first class will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of privacy settings on several social networks and participants will learn how to adjust those settings.

This topic continues with “Internet Safety: Protecting Your Privacy Online”on Friday, July 31. Participants will learn strategies and skills to protect themselves and their privacy.

Classes on digital photo storage and online music sites will be covered in August. Each course will go over the major sites for digital photos and online music to help participants understand and ultimately choose a site they’d like to use in the future.

The online music course -- “Introduction to Online Music” -- will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, August 14. The digital photo course -- “Digital Photos: Organizing, Sharing, and Basic Editing” -- will be held at 11 a.m. on Friday, August 21.

Each class will be held at the Senior Center. Classes are free, but space is limited. To register, call the Senior Center at (319) 356-5220.

For questions about the classes, contact the Library at (319) 356-5200.
