Computer Lab

One of the most popular benefits to our members is open year round.  Board Meetings, Workshops and AARP Tax Aide (M/W/F 8 AM till 1PM Feb – Apr 15) also use this facility.  The Lab is CLOSED during these times.

Located in the Lakes Rec Center, next to Computer Club classroom.  Several workstations with special features and software provide a variety of options:

  • Convert slides or photos to digital images and copy to CD
  • Convert records (LPs, 45 and 78 rpm) and cassette tapes to digital media
  • Transfer VHS tapes to DVDs or flash drives and edit your home movies
  • Surf the Internet or play online games
  • Skype with family or friends
  • Research your family tree using World Edition subscription and Family Tree Maker software
  • Three “Explore” computers give you a chance to compare operating systems – Windows 7, Windows 8.1 and El Capitan on the new iMac
  • Most workstations have easy to follow instruction guides, Office 2007 and Skype
  • Secure Internet access for Members (use one of the Lab computers or bring your own laptop or device to use the secure wifi)
