Bastrop area parents and their children are invited to an Internet Safety for Kids course Tuesday, February 21 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Bastrop Public Library, 1100 Church Street. Students ages 10 and more can bring a parent or guardian for free computer training sponsored by the library and local non-profit Technology For All (TFA).
The class will be led by TFA Program Specialist and Bastrop resident Laura McBain. “Among other things, we want to show parents and children how to keep private information private, trends in internet safety and where kids are going in social media, and how to deal with cyber bullying,” McBain said. Due to the interest in the class, please call the library at 332-8880 to register for the event or sign up at the reception desk.
As part of a group of Texas non-profit organizations in the Texas Connects Coalition, Technology For All has held computer training classes at the downtown Bastrop library since October 2011.
