..It's Cool Man..
One of the many cool features that the City provides it's residents is the Louisville Library.
Since 1901 the City Library has been providing resources that improve the quality of life for it's residents and that tradition continues with new energy today.

Clearly the best deal in town is the Louisville Library Card. For the cost of free, you have access to thousands of, books, magazines, and now a broad and growing assortment of DVD's that include some of the most popular new movies.
Finishing up the summer reading program, entitled "Get a Clue" at your public library, Ruth is selecting new books in preparation for the exciting Fall Reading Program. (Details Soon)
"We have our regular frequent visitors, avid readers stocking up on paperbacks, students with their research and regular groups from 2 local day care centers." says Librarian HLavac.
With the recent gift from Carla Knott and the Farmers Bank of Cook, the Library was able to take part in the BUILD WireLess Louisville Initiative and now has free Hi-Speed Broad Band Wireless Internet access for it's visitors.
Louisville Librarian Ruth Hlavac explains that Park visitors, and campers regularly visit the Library to check email, or do a Google search on a fishing lure. She has also observed that the Air Conditioning is very popular as well.
You can now send our librarian an email at the most obvious email address: [email protected] that nobody could forget.
Give a gift that will stand the test of time

...Summer Comes to a Close...
Thanks for all the Memories!
This weekend, we celebrate the last great excuse for a barbecue before we have to start shoveling snow again.
Labor day, is the only national holiday that has absolutely no strings attached.
This next Monday the sheer glory of under-achieving is held up as an inspiration for us all.
Labor Day is a celebration of goofing off, and so be it!
Even John Plucknett is forced to take a day off.
Hammocks, and hamburgers, and possibly even a cold frosty beverage should mark this day. Just don't do any work.

It has been an interesting decade!
I remember arriving in Louisville in 1997 and asking where the laundromat was, and who the local Internet service provider was. Well, I found the Laundromat ok, but I got a universal deer-in-the-headlights response to the request for internet access. It turned out that the closest Point-of-Presence for the Internet was Lincoln, and that was a long distance telephone connection. I later discovered that everything was a long distance call, even 3 miles to the north side of the Platte.
10 years later what a pleasure it is to sit in the Main Street Cafe, or lounge in the Library and sip free Hi-Speed wireless internet with my Laptop. Life is Good!
I literally have access to the Library of Congress or the Smithsonian Museum from our Louisville Library
Here is a bit of Trivia to Ponder:
As of June 10, 2007, 1.133 billion people where using the Internet world wide.
As of July, 2007, the world's population had reached over 6.6 billion.
That basically says that here in August 2007 1 in every 5 people with a pulse use the Internet.
I mean that includes the remotest reaches of Africa, and Asia and even Fridley, Minnesota
Hey, all that in about 10 years! When in history has there ever before been such a dramatic increase in the ability for people to communicate, and access knowledge any time, anywhere?
It may just be, that these days we are living are actually the Good Old Days, we just haven't noticed yet! - Stay Tuned!
