The Portsmouth Free Public Library will be offering computer classes with hands-on instruction in the coming weeks. The first series of classes will focus on building skills with Microsoft Excel and help students create an Excel workbook, apply formulas, format data and analyze the results. These Excel classes will meet from 10 a.m. to noon on Mondays, 23 July, 30 July, and 6 Aug.
A second series of classes will address the use of Microsoft Powerpoint. Students will learn how to create an effective presentation by enhancing slides with charts, diagrams, photos and videos, and then broadcasting the results.
