Second Thursday

The Second Thursday Gathering will be on March 8th at 10:30 AM.

The Second Thursday topic will be Using Universal Class Continuing Education. The North Dakota State Library and RBdigital have made it possible to take online continuing education classes free of charge.  There is a list of over 500 classes available in a wide variety of topics.  If you are interested in familiarizing yourself with the system, come to this basic introductory session.  You do need a library card to use the system.

One topic in which some have expressed interest is Microsoft Excel – how to make and use spreadsheets.  There are individual classes for several versions of Excel, including the 2016 version.  If there is interest, a group could be organized to take the class together.  Stop by the library for more information or help in getting set up.
