Welcome to the Burt Public Library!
Basic Computer and Internet Class
Computer Class - Monday the 11th at 10:30 AM
I've had some interest in a beginner computer and internet class. I hesitate to even call it a class -- more of a how-to and question and answer time.
If you have your own laptop, bring it. Otherwise we have computers for you to use. If you have no experience and you'd like to learn the basics or if you have some experience but need help or have questions, then this little morning get together is for you!
Want to Skype?
Want to Skype with the kids or grandkids that don't live near here? You don't know what Skyping is? It's video chatting. You can see and hear them and they can see and hear you.
Guess what, we have a webcam available for your use. Don't know how? Don't worry, we're going to have a class for that too! Or come on in anytime, I'll help you.
All Aboard! Monday the 18th at 6:30
We have a visitor coming. Rudolph Daniels has written, Trains Across the Continent, a history of U. S. railroads. He will be here to speak about the past, present and future of Iowa's railroads. The program explores our unique position in the construction of the first transcontinental railroad and Iowa’s great contribution to railroad safety. The talk also describes the famous streamliners that rode Iowa’s rails. All aboard for an Iowa rail adventure! If you think this sounds like a dry, boring history lesson, it is NOT. I have spoken to Mr. Daniels several times and he is very interesting and entertaining.
The program will start at 6:30 PM on Monday, May 18th. Please, be here by 6:20 so we can get everyone seated and ready and roll! Let's give our speaker a great big Burt welcome and let him know how supportive and appreciative our community is!
Prior to the event we will be displaying some early railroad photos and some railroad equipment and memorabilia from private collections.
Dr. Seuss Party
We had a great turn out for the Dr. Seuss party March 14th. We ate Green Eggs and Ham and cupcakes, and drank orange and red punch. We played games, played with oobleck, gave away prizes, and took pictures of a Thing or two and some Lorax. Bet you didn't even know we had Lorax living in Burt!
