Tailored to individual 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.
ConsumerReports provides ratings, reviews, and recommendations for products and services. The Peru Library provides ConsumerReports for free to our patrons in its print and electronic formats. Continue to read current issues at the library or quickly research products using the online (electronic) version. Use the e-version of Consumer Reports anywhere. At our website, click on Books+More, then Research Databases, then on Consumer Reports.
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.
