The Colona Public Library is offering free technology training to residents of the Colona Library District. Six-week courses will be offered in a variety of computer-related subjects, from basic keyboarding and computer skills to training in various software applications, such as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Publisher, and QuickBooks. The next round of courses will begin on August 20th. The schedule for the coursework is designed to be flexible enough to accommodate an individual’s home and work obligations. Preference in selection of candidates will be given to individuals who are low-income, unemployed or underemployed. Applicants for training must be 18 or older and live within the Colona Library District.
For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 309-792-0548 and ask for information about the technology training grant. This program is being funded by a grant from the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.

Recycle @ the Library
The Colona Public Library is collecting aluminum cans (empty and rinsed please!)
The aluminum is sold by the pound and the profits go towards library programs. Please do not drop off bags of mixed recyclables!
If you are living in the area and don't yet have a library card, please stop in to apply for one now!
We have free internet usage on library computers and wi-fi access. If you're 18 or over, you can borrow movies on VHS and DVD - we have most new releases, in addition to holiday shows and old favorites! We now have videogames available, too! We have books for any age for recreation and research. We can show you how to get books from any other library in our system to be delivered here for your convenience. You can request books or renew them on-line. You can even download audiobooks and e-books for free from the comfort of your own home! We also have a copier which has great features to print, scan or copy in color.
