Do you learn better by doing than by reading a book? Then these websites may be just what you need to help you learn more about using a computer, surfing the Web, or writing a resume. They are all about practice, practice, practice. Try more than one for a little variety, and ask a reference librarian if you need help!
Buffalo & Erie County Public Library Online Tutorials -- Lots of ways to learn basics about the computer, using a mouse, browsing the Internet and using email, and more. Click on the "Previous" and "Next" links to move forward or backward through the lesson.
Mousing Around -- a resource to help beginning computer users become familiar with using a mouse. Also try Mousercise for more practice using a mouse. (Both are from the Palm Beach County Library System.)
Peter's Online Typing Course -- A free typing lesson that may help you move beyond hunt-and-peck typing. Each lesson covers a few keys at a time, and allows you to practice each step as much as you want before you move on to the next lesson. Great refresher for those who already know how to touch-type but haven't done it for a while.
Scranton Public Library's Mouse Tutorial -- As the name implies, this one is all about the mouse. Great for practice!

These sites offer fun ways to practice using a mouse, mostly focusing on clicking and "click and drag" movements.
