The Blackfoot Public Library is offering a Tech Savvy class, to teach seniors how to use technological devices.

BLACKFOOT, Idaho (KIFI/KIDK) - Being left behind in the digital age can make people feel isolated from the world.

That's why the Blackfoot Public Library is offering a new class for people who want to learn more about their electronic devices.

The first class was offered on Tuesday, and allowed people to bring in their phones, laptops and ask questions about how to use it.

Most participants are seniors who don't have much experience with their gadgets.

“Any time you get any kind of a gadget, your first (response) is fear. You don’t know, you don’t want to hurt it, you don’t want to break it," said Lisa Harral of the Blackfoot Public Library.

"We have people here who will gently walk you through what needs to be done. We’re hoping to offer very basic, beginning tech savvy (information) with different gadgets,” Harral said.

The library is asking those who are interested to call them and let them know so they can plan the next class. The library can be reached at (208) 785-8628.
