Visit this space to find out the latest happenings at Muhlenberg County Public Libraries!

Free Computer Classes

Muhlenberg County Public Libraries, Muhlenberg County Adult Education/ACE2 and the Felix E. Martin Jr. Foundation are partnering together to provide new opportunities for county residents.

Thanks to this partnership, Muhlenberg Countians will be able to access free online computer classes to improve necessary technology skills.

Classes will cover many topics, including computer skills for the GED, mouse tutorials, basic computer skills, file management, exploring the Web, e-mail basics, word processing, spreadsheets and presentations.

The classes, which are a service from national course provider Teknimedia, allow students to work at the their own pace and on their own schedule. Once registered, students will be able to access classes while at the library, at the Career Advancement Center or even from home. Registration, like the individual courses, is free. These classes will help local residents improve their computer skills without requiring them to invest a lot of money or attend classes at inconvenient times.

Funding for the program is provided by the Felix E. Martin Jr. Foundation. The program is administered as a collaborative effort by ACE2 and Muhlenberg County Public Libraries.

For more information or to register for the program, call 270-338-4760 or 270-338-2257.

Buy It Now


Holiday shopping season is upon us, but did you know that you can help support your local library as you do your shopping?
Popular online retailer has partnered with public libraries to offer the “Buy It Now” button on library websites.

The process is simple, and you have multiple ways of doing your shopping. If you find a book while browsing the Muhlenberg County Public Library catalog that you decide to purchase rather than check out from the library, you can click the “Buy It Now” button beside the book’s title. The page for that title will pop up, allowing you to add the book (and anything else you’d like to purchase) to your cart.

Alternatively, you can visit our Web site at and click on the Buy It Now link there; you can find it as one of the scrolling images at the top of the page. Once you click on that, Amazon’s main page will open, allowing you to start shopping.

After you check out and pay for your purchases, will send a portion of your payment back to the library to be used for materials, programs, and services.

This feature does not add any additional cost to your purchases, and it applies to almost anything you purchase from Amazon through our link. Once you click our special link, as long as you don’t close the page or leave, your purchases will all count toward our proceeds.

As a public library, we rely on our community to keep us going and allow us to continue to provide our programs and services, and this is a great way to help support the library without any additional cost to consumers!

The Jubilee of Trees will be on exhibit at Thistle Cottage from December 1 through December 30. The public is invited to visit Thistle Cottage on December 5 from 2 to 4 p.m. for an open house. Hot chocolate and cider will be available, and visitors can view the trees and vote for their favorites.

Santa Claus will also be visiting Thistle Cottage on December 5 to sit for photos with our younger visitors. Santa Claus will be here from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for children to visit and have their photos taken. A disc of photos will be available for $10 (to be picked up at Thistle Cottage at a later date).
