Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to take all the classes (as in a series) or can I pick and choose the courses I am interested in?
You can either sign up for the classes as a series (meeting once a week for several weeks) or pick and choose the courses you would like to take.

How can I register for the classes?
Call Ready Reference at 286-3011 or walk in to any City of Milwaukee library to sign up for classes. Library staff can help you sign up for classes at any location. You can also register online via the Library Event Calendar.  Sign up early; classes fill up fast.

What are walk-ins? | How can I walk-in to a class?
Often times, there are a number of registrants who do not show up the day of class. We hold their reservation until the start of class, if they fail to show up, we seat walk-ins at these open computers. We are usually able to accommodate most walk-ins.

How many times can I sign up for the classes?
Due to high demand for these classes, please allow a 30-day grace period if you wish to repeat or re-register for a class in order to give others an opportunity to participate in this valuable training.
