"As the world shifts to the digital age, a knowledge of computers is becoming an essential part of life.
The group having possibly the hardest transition is the elderly. The technology hasn't been a part of their lives as much as it has for younger people.
To help the elderly ease into the digital world, local libraries offer assistance to learn the ever advancing technology. Whether it is computers or e-readers, library staffs deal with people trying to find comfort using these tools on a daily basis.
At the Frackville Free Public Library, free computer classes are held from 10 to 11 a.m. every Thursday for people ages 55 and older. The hour is designated to help people learn basic computer skills, such as operating the machine or using the Internet."
