Project Next Generation

Posted September 25th, 2013 in Teens, Uncategorized

Project Next Generation, a program sponsored by the Illinois Secretary of State, is now in its seventh year of implementation at Hayner Library. We are excited to be able to offer programs to emerging fifth graders through exiting eighth graders to give them a special opportunity to learn new skills while having fun.

Scheduled in the Multipurpose Room at our Alton Square Mall location, the program has room for 10–12 tweens/teens. This fall, we covered topics such as learning current computer applications like Office Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Publisher. We also learned how to use an iPad, laptop, and other technology that are so important in today’s world.
In addition, we are hoping to develop a cadre of Project Next Generation graduates to be mentors to the younger patrons who want to learn how to use our computers and technological equipment.
There is no cost involved, and the payoffs are huge!
Call 433-2861 for more information about the program and be sure to check the upcoming fall newsletter for more information on our next set of Project Next Generation classes.
