Books-n-Bits by The Douglas County Public Library

We certainly enjoyed having the children participate in the Summer Reading programs at the Douglas County Public Library. We appreciate McDonads, Town and Country Bank, and the Friends of the Library for helping make it all a success. Before school starts, there will be one more event we would like to invite everyone to participate in. Thursday, August 8, at 7 p.m. Rebecca Smith and Myrna Stark from the Douglas County Extension office will present a program on Being Active. All ages are welcome. Admission is free.

We would like to share with you three new databases. Resume and Cover Letter Builder offers over 200 expert-developed resumed covering a range of occupations and preparation levels. Computer Skills Center has more than 100 self-directed video tutorials for commonly used software applications from Adobe, Microsoft, and the Windows operating system. And Read It! is designed for middle and high school students and adults who have a basic foundation in English grammar and reading but need adapted reading material for a variety of subjects. All of these programs  may be accessed through our website at http://douglascountylibrary.lib.mo.us
