Adult Game Nights @ Your Library Resume in January
Have you got a "Clue" about the second Friday night of each month at the Plattsmouth Public Library? Is there a "Monopoly" on your time or is it filled with "Balderdash?" Use your "Cranium" and come to the library to play any or all of your favorite board games beginning on Friday, January 11, 2013. Games will be played 7:00-9:00 pm in the auditorium.
This event is free. Simply bring a snack to share if you would like, and coffee will be provided. No registration is required. Please call Kirsten at 402-296-4154, extension 21, if you have questions. We look forward to seeing everyone on January 11 comparing "Apples to Apples."
Additional Computer Classes in January
The following regularly scheduled computer classes will be offered again in January: Basic Computers, Basic Internet, Using the Internet Wisely, Word Processing, Intermediate Email, and Excel. Brief descriptions and class times for the regularly scheduled computer classes can be found on this sample class schedule. Class size is limited to 14. Please call the library if you would like to attend one of the sessions or if you have any questions. A new schedule will be announced in the middle of December.
