Central Community College Classes in Libraries

Contracts are complete for computer classes to begin in Library Broadband Builds Nebraska Communities libraries in  public libraries in the  Central Community College area. Initial menus of classes  are listed below.  These (Free-of-charge) classes are designed for your library customers, but of course library staff are invited to attend AND you are always welcome to invite library staff from neighboring libraries.

Computer-Related Training Session Options  @ your library®

Provided by Central Community College

(Through a contract with the Nebraska Library Commission and available at

“Library Broadband Builds Nebraska Communities” participating libraries within CCC’s service area)

To schedule a training session at your library, contact Ron Kluck, Central Community College (402) 562-1253 or rkluck@cccneb.edu

Training is available through March 31, 2013 while funds last.  There is a possibility that training could be extended through June 30, 2013 based on available funds.

All costs, to include fees and materials, will be covered through an existing contract between CCC and NLC.  This means that any session you may schedule with the college at your library will be at no cost to the library or to the student. 

If the Library would like to have an advertisement placed in the newspaper (classified  ads—in the want ads section) to be paid directly by the Nebraska Library Commission’s grant funds, please call JoAnn McManus in advance to work on placement.

Note:  When the library or the college promotes any training program scheduled through this opportunity, please acknowledge the funding source by using the following language:  “This project was supported in part by the Department of Commerce, National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP), funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, as administered by the Nebraska Library Commission.”
