Tablet 101 class offered

PIQUA — Brad Reed will offer a Tablet 101 class on Thursday, April 4, from 6-8 p.m. at the YWCA Piqua for those interested in learning more about tablets and iPads.

“Many people who have these electronic devices or got them as gifts are confused and unsure about what it does and how to use it,” said Reed. “I hope to lessen that stress and help everyone maximize their use of this wonderful tool.”

Participants are encouraged to bring their own tablet or iPad to class and spend time learning how to use it and practice with their own device.

Membership is not required for this hands-on class. Class fee is $8. For more information on the class or to register, stop at the YWCA Piqua at 418 N. Wayne St. or call 773-6626. The YWCA is handicapped-accessible.
