Library Focus: Learn computer, career building skills

The weather remains undecided but March is shaping up to be another busy month here at BPL. Join us for an exciting new display of art works by students from Ray Middle School and Durgee Junior High, then stay to check out new titles in all areas of the library. While you're here, be sure to grab a calendar so you can be up to date on upcoming programs for all ages.

Wired Wednesdays

Wired Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m. every Wednesday are basic programs for computer beginners helping you master skills or tasks that come up on a regular basis. The rest of this month's schedule is as follows: March 9 - Evaluating Web Info- Who can you trust? Protect yourself from scams and learn how to evaluate information provided on the web; March 16 - What is this file? This class will help you figure out why that file won't open on your computer and what you can do about it; March 23 - EBooks! Learn how to find, download and manage digital books for your reader; and March 30 - Skype Don't Phone! Video and teleconferencing aren't just for high-powered executives. If you have a computer with Internet and a web cam, you can use Skype to see and hear distant friends, family and business associates.

Genealogical treasures

Genealogist Louise Creighton teaches how to find family stories and notices in old newspapers online at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday March 9 in the Community Room. Registration is required.

Mystery Readers

This month's mystery is far from cozy. Join the Mystery Readers as they tackle Laura Lippman's gritty mystery thriller "What the Dead Know" at 10 a.m. Thursday March 10.

Network for your net worth

Job hunting and career building is all about connections with people, resources and new skills. We can help you develop all three with our Thursday afternoon programs. If you've been unemployed for a long time, you probably need to recharge your batteries. Join Librarian Julia Schult for How to Hope on March 10 and return on March 24 to learn how to Focus Your Job Search for better results. In between classes, join other local seekers to develop new skills on March 17 and 31.
