The library has new equipment!  Our computers have been updated with a technology planning grant from the SD Broadband Initiative.  We now have four new public internet access computers.  These computers have flat screen displays and are speedy.  A new computer is also available for the public catalog of our materials, and the staff is using updated equipment to better serve you as well.  The library is a great place to stay connected with friends and family through email or social media. We also have a download station for audiobooks from the SD Titles to Go. Come in and check it all out!

What if everyone in South Dakota read the same book? The One Book South Dakota program is a statewide initiative sponsored by the SD Humanities Council to get as many people to read and discuss the same title each year.  The selection for 2012 is Dammed Indians Revisited: The Continuing History of the Pick-Sloan Plan and the Missouri River Sioux by Michael L. Lawson. The discussion will be held Friday, November 16 at 4:00.  Eleanor Iverson will lead the discussion—all are invited to take part!
