The library is planning a special After Hours Computer Lab Open House on June 11 (Monday) from 4:30 to 6:00 p.m.  The community is invited to come see the computers and learn about services that can be utilized on the computers.  Please plan to join us. 

Demonstrations will showcase websites that provide services for citizens in accessing information to “advance access to employment, learning, health information, and E-Government services.”  There are 10 websites that offer these services free to anyone who needs them.       E-government services include the Nebraska Judicial System, the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services, and the Nebraska Department of Labor.  The Nebraska Judicial System website includes information on divorces, child custody and child protection, definitions of legal words and explanations of legal procedures.  With the Nebr. DHHS website one can create an account and follow his/her case concerning benefits; find explanations of benefits in Nebraska and forms to apply for benefits.  The Nebraska Department of Labor website allows for filing for unemployment, job searching and creating an account to keep track of searches.  Employers can post job openings.

Two of the websites provide access to medical information, the University of Nebraska Omaha and a Mid-continent network of medical libraries.  The Nebraska Center for Rural Entrepreneurship is a great site to assist communities in creating employment and to help provide encouragement to younger adults who want to stay in the areas they love.  Other websites are the Center for Rural Affairs, The University of Nebraska Extension Service, The Nebraska Community Foundation and Central Community College.
