The Sint Maarten Library re-launches its Senior Cyber Training Program.

Registration for seniors interested in becoming more computer literate can sign up from Tuesday May 10 to Saturday May 14 on for the program. This course is made possible through a partnership with the Reading Rainbow Play School on Back Street.

This  first eight weeks course for 2022 , will start on Tuesday, May 17, 2022, and  end on  July 13, 2022. The Sint Maarten Library staff will facilitates the  classes on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from nine o’clock until noon. The location will be at the Reading Rainbow Playschool.

We all experience a fast growth of digitization in the civic community. Banks offer online banking, SZV offers a My Portal, and appointments with the government service center need to be scheduled online. As a senior, you need to keep up with these developments. This experience will  also help seniors ( age 60 and up) to get access to the Philipsburg Jubilee digital library, so that they  do not leave their  home to borrow  and read exciting e-books.

The first four weeks of the course will focus on basic skills such as how to navigate the computer. After that, our trainers will guide you on using the internet properly. Time will be spent on applications, such as word and excel.

Admission can be made via telephone or by visiting the Sint Maarten Library. We advise seniors to come with their personal laptops and ensure that there is internet at home so that they can practice at home.

The courses are free, but we recommend a library membership. The maximum number of participants currently is ten. Seniors that already participated in the senior cyber classes before will be contacted to let them know when the advance classes will be scheduled.  

Persons interested in assisting the library with this community based program by offering or volunteering your services can contact Ms. F. Housen , the media coach during workhours from 8 am to 5 pm.
