We are excited to announce we have added five new computers patrons may use to access the internet. This was made possible through the Bill and Melinda Gates Opportunity Online Hardware Grant. As this was a matching grant, we would like to thank Emerson Client Technologies and the Douglas County Friends of the Library for helping us with our part of the match. This brings our total to nine public access internet computers, which should eliminate most, if not all of the wait time to use a computer.
Ann Duckworth has put together a very nice display on baseball player and Douglas County native Carl Mays. Be sure to take a look on your next visit to the library.
Among the new books at the library you will find:
