    I thought there was a Quick Books class. Is there going to be one?

  2. Shirley, Community Ed Coordinator Says:

    KDL offers popular request classes using software that is currently available on our computers or is available at no cost on the web. Since there is a cost associated with QuickBooks, we are unable to offer it at this time. In the meantime, we are happy to consider other suggestions for public computer class offerings you might have.

    When are the next classes offered and what are the cost of the classes. Where are they held?
