FAS eLearning official re-launch. 15th April 2010.

The FAS eLearning official re-launch will take place on Thursday 15th April 2010 at 7pm in Sligo Central Library. After a successful series of computer classes in the autumn of 2009, the constant demand by the public has lead to a continuation of this service which is facilitated by the Library Service and offered by FAS. This launch will officially recognise the classes and workshops which are being scheduled for Sligo Library branches (Central Library, Tubbercurry Library and the Local Studies Library) and run by FAS co-coordinators. Please come along for more information or ring us on 071 9111675 if you would like to participate in any of these classes.
