Though the Ridgefield Park Library has offered basic Internet instruction classes for the past four years, the sessions haven’t filled as quickly as they have in 2010. Director Eileen Mackesy-Karpoff said the number of adults who sign up for the classes has increased largely due to the patrons’ needs to apply to online job postings. Karpoff said the class enrollment isn’t merely the older library users — the students range in age from 30 years to senior citizen status, anyone who has never been exposed to computers either in school or in the workforce. Now, most of them have realized that learning how to use the computer and how to navigate the Internet are essential tools in not only looking for jobs, but also in becoming more attractive as candidates for jobs.
