LEWISTON — The Lewiston Public Library along with the Downtown Education Collaborative will offer a special series of computer instruction sessions for older adults this summer.

The free one-on-one tutorials are scheduled to take place from 1 to 3 p.m. each Thursday through Aug. 12 in the library’s computer lab. The sessions are designed to assist anyone age 60 or over with learning the basics of using the Internet or to receive help with word processing or other entry-level computer functions. People are invited to drop in at any time during the two-hour sessions and to attend as many of them as they like. No advance registration is required.

Staffing the sessions will be two students from Kaplan University (formerly Andover College), Susan Kiralis and Chris Araujo. Topics covered in the lab will include basic computer use as well online functions such as how to write and send e-mail, how to use Google and other search engines, navigating on the Web, selling on eBay and how to use chat rooms and blogs.

More information is available by calling the Lewiston Public Library Reference Desk at 513-3135.
