COLUMN: Library Focus - Author Katie Aldridge visits the library Thursday

— How the other half lives

Norah Vincent invested 18 months of her life investigating the world from a male perspective. Disguised as a man, she infiltrated bars, jobs, bowling teams and monasteries in an attempt to discover what life is like for the supposedly “stronger” sex. Join in on the conversation at 9 a.m. Tuesday, May 21, as we discuss the resulting book “Self Made Man.” Refreshments will be served and new members are always welcome.


The group meets from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 21, to trade and play informal games.

Storing and sharing digital photos

Wired Wednesday offers two photography related courses this month: on May 22, we’ll show you how to manage and store your digital photos, and on May 29 we’ll show you how to share your photographic treasures with others.

Spring clearance

Still too wet to garden? Get out of the house and clean out your old projects. If you sew, knit or crochet, bring a project and work on it from 6:30 to 8:45 p.m. Wednesday, May 22, in our community room with others who are working on their needlework.

Last Thursday Book Club

Join the group from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on the last Thursday of each month to discuss fiction and nonfiction with a historical focus. For May, we are reading “Haven: The Dramatic Story of 1,000 World War II Refugees and How They Came to America,” by Ruth Gruber. Some copies of a young adult book on the same topic will also be available: “Good night, Maman,” by Norma Fox Mazer. Anyone can borrow a copy of these books at the Circulation Desk; ask for the Last Thursday Book Club book for the month.

That’s all for now folks. Breathe deep, relax and get ready for summer.

Valerie Chism is the young adult librarian at the Baldwinsville Public Library.
