Building a website? Hmmmm? That might sound pretty intimidating to a lot of people. 

Becky, a Pearl Library Reference Services staffer who morphs into a computer instructor once a month, grins and says "No! It's a lot of fun!"

Many see website building as only for business use in this big world of the internet. "You can do all sorts of things with a website," Becky says. "If you have hobbies, you can build a website for that too."

No matter why you want to build a website, it all has to start with the basics. That's what Becky's Thurs. November 5 class at 6 p.m. at the Pearl Library is all about. It's called Website Development: Introduction to HTML.  Oh, boy! Did the class title just send you right back into intimidation mode?!?!?!  WHAT IS HTML? Good question! It's actually fairly simple.

HTML sounds like  a foreign language, right?! That's because it is a type of language. HTML stands for HyperText Markup Language used to create web pages.  Web browsers (or browsers) read HTML files like one would read a coded message. Then the browser changes the code into easily identifiable information that looks like a webpage. TADA! 

Becky will make the class so much fun and easy to understand. It's free and comes in three parts. The introduction class will be followed by two other website building classes on Thurs. Dec. 5 at 6 p.m. and Thurs. Jan.7 at 6 p.m.

Don't miss out on this opportunity to enter a world of building something for yourself. Whether it's a website for fun or business, Becky has you covered!

We'll see you there!
