Library Focus: Check out this weekend’s spring flower show

— Memorial Day is past and we’ll soon be knee deep in picnics and high school graduation parties but the workaday world goes on. Stop in soon to see how the library can help you both at work and on the weekend.

Portable tunes

When I was young, transistor radios were part of the teenage uniform. Transistors are old school now, but you can still have the summer music experience with less weight, less static and no commercials. Find out how to load and use an MP3 player for your summer soundtrack at 1:30 p.m. May 30.

Tech help drop-in

Librarians will be available to help with laptops, mobile devices, e-readers and tablet computers from 1 to 2:30 p.m. Fridays. No registration is necessary, but please bring manuals if you have them.

Spring flower show

Once again our community room will bloom with the works of the Men’s Garden Club of Syracuse. Stop in for a look from 12:30 p.m. to close Saturday, June 2, and from 1 to 4 p.m. Sunday, June 3.

Free computer classes

Wired Wednesdays, offered at 1:30 p.m. Wednesdays, cover a variety of topics. June classes include File Types for Everyone (June 6), Basic Excel (June 13), Basics of Digital Photos (June 20) and Pinterest? What’s That? (June 27). Our Thursday classes, held at 7 p.m., presume a basic knowledge of Windows and focus on specific projects. This month’s offerings include Computer Clean-out Class (June 7), Resume Clinic (June 14), All about Ebooks (June 21), and DIY Home Repair on the Web (June 28). All classes are hands-on workshops with a limit of 10 participants; registration is required.

Crafty companions

Come on in and craft with congenial companions. We offer free form sewing style circles free and open to all. Pulling Threads meets from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday, June 6 and 20, to work on personal projects. In Stitches is a similar group that meets at 7 p.m. Wednesday, June 27. Both programs are free and do not require registration.
