Greetings Everyone,
Sorry if you missed it!  We covered everything from speed dating, to culinary learning  to a nude exhibit at the Union gallery - Rotary truly is the place to be on a Wednesday for lunch.  

We had a great presentation by Laura Marlane, Director of the Omaha Public Library, on the amazing things going on there.  They have databases available for tutoring on a whole range of subjects, E books, Audio books, online reservations for books, and an incredible music library at your fingertips.  There is free member use of computers and internet access and reading help available.  The library has Zoo passes, Children's museum passes, and Fontenelle Forest passes available, and even toys available to check out with your library card.  Brad vonGillern. was glad to learn they have even set up an amnesty program for late fees on books.  Who knew the library was such a happening place these days? A new branch is planned for 210th and Q coming soon.  If you haven't been there, go check out the library, it's not the same as when you were a kid. 
Thanks to Cella for another interesting and informative program.
