VHS to DVD Conversion
On the 2nd & 4th Thursdays of the month between 2-4pm, a volunteer will be available to assist you in converting your personal home movies on VHS to DVD.  The conversion takes place in real-time, so be prepared to wait for the duration of the movie or to start conversion and return at the end of the film.  Contact Liz at the library for more information - 712-246-2315.

Homebound Delivery
The Shenandoah Public Library offers homebound delivery of library materials to patrons in Shenandoah city limits who can't get to the library because of temporary hardship due to major illness, an ongoing need due to physical handicap, long-term illness, or homebound seniors.  You will receive personalized visits, no overdue fines, longer lending periods (8 weeks), and delivery right to your front door.  Delivery will be made on the 1st and/or 3rd Friday of the month, and participants will need to call in their requests by 5pm on the Wednesday prior to delivery.  Librarians will work with you to select books that are to your taste.  Call Carrie or Liz at the library for more information or to sign up: 712-246-2315.

Computer Classes
The library is offering a series of beginning computer classes called "Step by Step."  The topics are very basic and designed for adults with very little or no computer experience.  Each class lasts about a half-hour followed by a half hour of practice and question time.   Call Joy Stortvedt at 712-246-2315 with any questions or to sign up.

Course Topics:
Fall 2014 details coming soon!  Classes projected between 9/29/14 & 10/3/2014.

Magic: The Gathering
Come to the library auditorium on the following Thursdays (typically the 3rd Thurs. of the month) from 4-5:30pm to play the trading card game Magic: The Gathering.  We'll provide the snacks, but you need to bring your own deck or borrow one from someone in the group.  Contact Joy Stortvedt at 712-246-2315 for more information.
