Spreadsheets have revolutionized the way we solve problems.  They allow us to organize and analyze information in a useful and intuitive way.

You can use spreadsheet software at home to balance your checkbook, prepare a budge, or as a better calculator.

In this class, you will learn basic spreadsheet concepts using Microsofl Excel 2007.  You will be provided with a computer and software during class sessions to give you a hands-on experience with the concepts being taught.

The group follows a briefing book and video provided by the Foreign Policy Association. Participation in the discussion group is free and open to the public. Briefing books are available to buy for $20.00 or to check-out for three days at a time. Call Meg at the library (970-964-2548) for more information.

Tonight’s topic is Cybersecurity

The securitization of cyberspace has caused a sea change for both governments and the private sector, faced with new threats, new battlegrounds and new opportunities. Faced with challenges such as international cybercrime and authoritarian control of networks, how will the U.S. and its democratic allies approach the cyber frontier? How does this new domain figure in U.S. strategic interests?

More Than A Month

Shukree Hassan Tilghman, a 29-year-old African American filmmaker, is on a cross-country campaign to end Black History Month. Through this tongue-in-cheek journey, More Than a Month investigates what the treatment of history tells us about race and equality in a “post-racial” America.  Co-sponsored by Rocky Mountain PBS, with support from Alpine Bank and the Friends of the Montrose Library, Community Cinema brings us together to learn, discuss and get involved in today’s critical issues, using screenings of films from the Emmy Award-winning PBS series Independent Lens.
