People helping people is what a community is all about. Everyone has something that they can share with someone else, and everyone can offer a helping hand in one way or another.
Students at Cranford High School are learning this. The CHAPS (Cranford High School Assistance Program) students will once again be sharing their technological savvy with some of the town’s older citizens who may be a little hesitant about using computer technology.
The Cranford Public Library will be offering Computer Internet Basics for Beginners classes for senior citizens on Thursdays. Students from Cranford High School will teach senior citizens basic Internet skills in a casual, one-on-one setting. Classes are ongoing beginning Jan. 8, 2015 and will run through May.
What a great set-up! Not only is it an opportunity to share skills, but it’s also a great way to promote understanding relationships across the generations . . . . going both ways.
Pre-registration is required as seating is limited. For more information or to register, call the library at 908-709-7272 and ask for Fran Housten.
