Today’s technology dictates the demand and need for computer knowledge from people of all ages. Computer classes are offered throughout the year and are advertised around town. From month to month, class times vary, based on trainer availability and in order to accommodate weekday, evening and Saturday attendance during the library’s hours of operation. Each class is a one-time workshop and is scheduled for one, two or three hours of instruction and hands-on training. For this reason, customers are encouraged to repeat a class several times, in order to strengthen their skills, before moving on to the next level of classes. Our year-round schedule allows for this kind of repetition in the learning process.
The majority of our scheduled computer classes and digital assessments are currently offered on a walk-in basis and seats are filled on a first-come, first-served Sign-in process that begins one-half hour before class begins.
Out of School Programs
Hobson City Library Out of School Program provides homework assistance, computer literacy, and library skills for students in grades K–12, and daily literacy enrichment activities for elementary school students. The program operates after school Monday – Thursday from 3pm to 6pm.
Hobson City Out of School activities and programs promote traditional literacy as well as literacy in science, technology, and cultural arts. It also introduces students to the many library resources and materials that are available, free of charge, to help them with school assignments, applying to college, and eventually securing meaningful employment.
Hobson City early founders had faith to believe in building a town. Now we must use that same faith to sustain Hobson City future.
