COLUMN: Library Focus – Preparing for the spring season

— Freeze, thaw, freeze, thaw…sneeze. The mud season is upon us with the kind of crazy, jumbled weather almost guaranteed to foster colds and flu. Get ahead of the game by taking care of your health before the weather and the germs take you down. We have just the tools to help you from tomes on nutrition and alternative medicine to workout videos and late breaking news on disease treatment and prevention.

Crafts to keep you warm

Pulling Threads meets on the first and third Wednesdays of every month to work on quilts, sewing projects, crochet, whatever you are interested in. Tables are available to lay out your work. No registration necessary. This month’s meeting will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. March 20.

Wired Wednesdays focuses on Ereaders and Tablets

Do you want to download books from the library on your ereader or Tablet, but are not sure how to get started? If so, we have a couple of classes held at 1:30 p.m. Wednesdays to help you get a handle on how it is done. March 20 is for Kindle and kindle app users and March 27 is a general introduction for using tablet computers including the Kindle Fire and the newer Nooks. All these sessions will help you learn how to find books on the library catalog and get them on to your device. The class and the books are free, but registration is required. Sign up on our website or call to reserve a space.

Friday tech drop in

Bring us your smartphones, ereaders and laptops that you are yearning to use freely but haven’t quite figured out yet and we’ll do our best to help set you on the road to mastery from 10 a.m. to noon every Friday in the computer classroom.
