Thanks to the Ottawa PC Users Group and presenters Chris Taylor, Jeff Dubois and Alan German, the Ottawa Public Library has been able to present a stimulating session of computer workshops to augment its own sessions. Although there is not enought room to list all of the workshops in all of the branches in this blog post, consider topics like what to consider when buying a computer and  presentations on protecting your computer, backing up your computer and learning more about the dangers of social media as well as the ins and outs of media streaming. Participants in these workshops will enjoy a variety of valuable and stimulating information.   For more information on topics, branches and times please consult the library's Programs and Events section.
