Library advocates and supporters, librarians and partners came together in Helena last week for a two-day celebration that launched the Montana State Library’s Broadband Technology Opportunity Project (BTOP).
Conrad librarian Carolyn Donath, representing the town’s library, attended the event.
The state library received a $1,829,473 grant to fund its “Enhancing Computer Centers at Montana Public Libraries” project, which is designed to expand broadband capacity and training in many of Montana’s public libraries.

Going into district tournament play as the fifth seeded team, Conrad drew the number four team Cut Bank for the opening game of the 1B Tournament in Choteau on Thursday.
In the first game the Lady Wolves pinned the Cowgirls into a 9-17 hole, but kill shots by Taylor Judisch and Moranda Brenteson helped keep the team alive.
Down by eight points, 12-20, Taylor Johnson came to the service line and with one ace in her service, the home girls went on a seven point run to get within a point.
Cut Bank got the contest to 22-24, but Kelli Fagan came to the line and brought the Conrad fans to their feet when the team tied the score at 24-24. However, Conrad couldn’t put the contest away and Cut Bank rallied back for two points to edge out the Cowgirls 24-26.
