Adult Programs & Events
Through a Library Services and Technology Act grant from the State Library of Florida, the Pinellas Park Public Library was able to purchase laptop computers, as well as other equipment, allowing us to develop a hands-on computer lab. Currently the library is offering free introductory computer training classes to the public utilizing this lab. Please note: due to the limited number of lab computers, pre-registration is required for these classes.
