Do you enjoy listening to stories? Consider joining us for our Podcasts computer class on Monday September 14, 2015 at 4pm in our Public Computing Center.
Podcasts are radio shows that you can download and listen to at your leisure. There are podcasts on a variety of subjects – entertainment, economics, politics, spirituality, and comedy are just a few. For example, if you like the popular radio show This American Life, you can subscribe to its podcast and listen to it when you have time. Many enjoy them while doing chores or driving to work. We will teach you how to download podcasts onto your phone or device and how to find podcasts you will like.
There are still a few spaces left in this class, but signup is required. Please call the Sidney Library (563-1200), register in person, or complete the registation online.
