Lakehills Area Library dinner set Feb. 14
• The Lakehills Area Library is busy getting ready for the annual fundraiser dinner. The library needs community support to offer the services and materials that the library supplies to the community. There are many ways you can help the library, such as a cash donation or a donation of an item for the auction, both of which are tax deductible.
You can also purchase raffle tickets to win a lovely bell provided by Medina Lake Bells (valued at $450) or a 50-inch flat screen television for $1 each or six for $5.
Dinner tickets are $8 for Gerry's famous chicken spaghetti, salad, bread and beverage. Attending the dinner and auction is one of the best ways to show support for the library. The dinner will be held at the Lakehills Civic Center at 5 pm Saturday, Feb. 14. The auction will begin at 6:30 pm. There will be a silent auction during the meal. There is always a variety of items donated by area business and individuals, often including handcrafted items from local artists.
• GED is coming back to the Lakehills Area Library. The library will be offering free GED classes to the community. Region 20 has arranged for the library to offer distance learning GED classes. What that means is that interested persons can get the education that they need to pass the GED exam on a schedule that suits them. The instructor will be available two to three days a month for one-on-one assistance and the study program will be flexible, so that students can use the library computers or home computers to study at their own pace and then meet with the instructor at the library on the scheduled days for one-on-one assistance. T
The library needs to have 10 students register to begin the program, so please contact the library at 830-510-2777 or come by to register.
• Free computer classes continue at the library. There will be a Word basics class Monday, Jan. 19, from 10 am to noon and an Excel basics class Monday Jan. 26, from 10 am to noon. The Computer Basics class will be offered again in February, since the class limit is nine and the class filled up fast. Please call the library or come by to sign up for classes.
