The Hildreth community is participating in the BTOP computer training classes. After the first two weeks, patrons have completed training in Uploading Pictures, Attachments, Cut Copy Paste and Saving Files. Because of the high interest in these classes, they are being offered again this month. A Beginning Computer class will also be taught later in October. Classes offered in November will include Facebook, Beginning Internet and more. Please stop in the library and sign up for a class (or classes) that interests you. The training is free and held at the library.

The Hildreth Public Library will be dedicating its Children’s Area on Sunday, August 26 at 4:30 p.m. in memory of Vera Ekund Otto. In December 2010 the Otto Family challenged us to raise funds and match $30,000.00 for the library expansion project in memory of Vera. The Friends of the Library went to work and raised the money in 15 months, 9 months ahead of the deadline.
Please join us for the Dedication on Sunday. The Otto Family will be present and will unveil the display they have prepared in Vera’s memory. Coffee and cake will be served.
Exciting News at Hildreth Public Library!!!
Free computer training will be available at our library to those interested in participating through the Library Broadband Builds Nebraska Communities program. (It is the same grant we received all the wonderful computers & equipment from) All costs, to include fees and materials, will be covered through an existing contract between Central Community College and the Nebraska Library Commission. Hildreth Public Library is one of the participating LBBNC libraries who may work with CCC to schedule no cost computer-related training sessions .
