Free digital literacy classes set


Connect Arkansas, a project of Arkansas Capital Corp., will hold free adult digital literacy classes at the Pine Bluff/Jefferson County Public Library System in March. The classes will focus on Internet and email basics.

Each class will last one hour on March 6 at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., noon, 1 p.m. and 2 p.m. There is a limit of three people for each class and students are provided computers. To sign up for a class, prospective students should call Janna Mitchell at 534-4802.

Connect Arkansas received federal stimulus grants to increase Internet awareness, education and use in Arkansas. As part of that grant, the agency launched the Adult Digital Literacy Program. More than 40 classes are scheduled for March throughout Arkansas.
