With the recent designation of area towns Cambridge, Morrisville, Hardwick and Calais as participants in the e-Vermont Community Broadband Project   there are a number of resources and free classes being offered. 
This list of links from Public Services Librarian Larraby Fellows, from the Hartness Library is a great place to start.
