Bitterroot Public Library is a Busy Place

The Bitterroot Public Library is not just rows and rows of books anymore. It’s become an information hub for the community.

With its free wi-fi, many people are logging onto the internet to get information. And that includes free downloads of books from the Montana Public Libraries in a program called Montanalibrary2Go. The staff at the Hamilton library also produced an on-line instruction video for the service. They offer person-to-person instruction on the program every third Monday of the month at the library on State Street.

The computer lab at the library is a popular place, and the staff uses it to teach the very basic skills in regularly scheduled classes. The lessons include such things as mouse and keyboard use and basic “start up” procedures. The next class is Tuesday, April 22, at 10 a.m. and the classes are limited to seven students each.

Another class on E-mail Basics (using GMail) will be Wednesday, April 23, at 6 p.m. in the downstairs meeting room. You’ll create an account and learn the basics about passwords and on-line messaging.

For these computer classes, you need to pre-register. Call (406) 363-1670 or drop by the library.

Of course, for the kids, the library has the long-standing story times – Toddler and Baby Story Time Wednesdays at 10:30 a.m. in the meeting room and Kids Story Time Fridays at 10:30 a.m. in the children’s corner. Lego Club is at 3:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Thursdays of the month in the meeting room. And, it’s almost time for the Summer Reading Program.

An active writers group and “Brown Bag It” book discussion groups are also featured. Get more information at the Front Desk or at the Bitterroot Public Library on-line site.

You get a lot with that one little library card. You can even check out a book!
