Florida's Broward County Library offers computer classes related to basic computer literacy, Microsoft software programs, social media and the Internet, as of 2015. Many of the computer classes are available in Spanish and Haitian Creole. Other classes include typing, resume writing and job searching. The library also conducts workshops on accessing the library's electronic resources such as magazine and e-book downloads.

Excel, Word and PowerPoint are some of the specific Microsoft training courses available from the Broward County Library. Patrons can also learn how to set up and use email and Facebook accounts and how to protect their privacy online.

The library's branches host the classes. The library's website posts a class calendar that allows searches by class name and branch location.

Classes are free and open to the public, though some library branches may require advance registration. The library conducts computer classes in fully equipped computer labs, so attendees do not need to bring laptops. Each class is a single session and lasts up to two hours.

The Broward County Library holds other special events. Book clubs are available for adults and children ages 8 to 14. The African-American Research Library and Cultural Center hosts Destination Fridays, offering attendees the opportunity to learn about exotic locales such as Hawaii and the Bahamas. Destination Fridays cost $10 and are only open to adults over 21 years of age.
