Tuesdays with Computers

Tailored to inComputerdividual needs, the Peru Public Library is offering basic instruction on using a computer, email or the internet. During twice a month sessions, you can schedule time to learn computer basics. Since everyone learns at different speeds, the library wants to provide individual sessions allowing adults to learn at their own pace without pressure. Tuesdays with Computers is the first and third Tuesday from January to April, between 10 and 11 am. Call to schedule a session, walk-ins welcome as space allows.

New Look to Library

Three chairs have arrived for the adult reading area, along with a side table. The library has begun replacing our old furniture. First we added chairs to the teen area. Now we are replacing the worn-out chairs in the adult reading area. Stop by to try one of the chairs.

And thanks to a generous gift, three more chairs will arrive around Christmas.

While the library is closed for Thanksgiving, you enjoy our electronic services by downloading books, magazines and music. Or with the family gathered for dinner, this is the perfect time to start your family history project with our World Vital Records database. Planning to hit stores on Black Friday, comparison shop with our Consumer Reports database.

We close at 5 pm Wednesday evening and all day on Thursday. The library reopens Friday morning at 9 am.
