Tech Classes

STRATHAM - Get the max with your library card online! Did you know that you can take online courses for credit, prepare for the SAT test, reserve books, download free ebooks, and much more for free with your Library Card on the Wiggin Memorial Library’s web site? Bring your library card (and your laptop if you’d like) to the Wiggin Memorial Library in Stratham on Mon., September 16, at 1:00 p.m., to get introduced to the library’s Web site and your online library account.

“We’ll explore all the resources you can access for free and go over the many ways you can use your library card to manage what you are reading and what you have read,” said Lesley Kimball, Library Director and workshop presenter. “Many people don’t know that they can put their reserved titles ‘on hold’ when they go on vacation or how to look at what they have checked out in the past,” Kimball added. Register for the session at the library’s online calendar (library.strathamnh.gov).

The library in Stratham will also present a technology class on the library’s subscriptions to LawDepot and Universal Class on Sat., September 21, at 11:00 a.m. LawDepot uses the NH state laws to guide you through creating legal documents that you can use like estate documents (living wills, power of attorney), real estate documents (leases, quitclaim deeds), financial documents (bill of sale, loan agreements), and more. Universal Class offers over 500 continuing education classes that you can take online, at your own pace, and earn CEUs. You can sign-up for the session at the library’s online calendar (library.strathamnh.gov).

The library is in the Stratham Municipal Center, 10 Bunker Hill Ave., Stratham. For more information, please contact the library at 603-772-4346 or director@wigginml.org or visit the library’s web site at http://library.strathamnh.gov.
