It seems like January is still the month to reorganize and plan for the year. The Oral History Project that was done in years past is being re-energized. There will be more on this topic in the paper. Some classes are being planned for February and March–more computer classes if there is a demand, and still hoping to get some crafting classes scheduled. April will bring a Microsoft Word class and an Ebay class, so watch for those.

Since the non-fiction part of the library has been thoroughly revamped and organized, we are collecting more history books, especially relating to Nebraska–about Nebraska, Nebraskans and by Nebraska authors. These will be listed in later columns.

There is room in the January 31 E-mail or Facebook class. Sign up at the library. If you want to participate in the other classes, let us know and we will set up a time. And mark your calendar for the book talk by C. M. Wendleboe of Wyoming. His books are available for checkout. The Photography contest flyers are being put out--have you seen them?
