Facebook has a lot of faults, I will admit, but the one thing I love is keeping in touch with friends and family that live far away. I have two cousins who are currently undergoing chemo for ovarian cancer. I have had two cousins who went through surgery and chemo for breast cancer. It was nice being able to keep up with them, how they were feeling, and how they were responding to treatment.
Training Offered ~ OverDrive: Downloading Digital eBooks for Adults
Come join us at the Liberty Branch on Tuesday, October 18th, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. to learn how to download digital eBooks from MCPL's collection onto your eReader. This presentation will provide a general overview of checking out eBooks through OverDrive including hardware and software requirements, searching for a title, downloading, and transferring to a device.
You’ve probably heard the big news by now, MCPL offers Kindle compatible eBooks! But did you know that you can still use your Nook, Sony, and even Apple device to read eBooks?
Sounds pretty exciting, right, but it also sounds a bit complicated. And for a person who has no technical ability like me, it can feel overwhelming. I want to keep up-to-date with the library of the future, but how exactly do I make that tiny computer file move from a website to my iPod?
I don’t know about you, but I am always looking for a way to save a few dollars. My husband, not so much. In spite of his lack of frugality, one thing he refuses to pay for is a haircut. By default, I am the family hairdresser. Some haircuts turn out better than others.
I’m hoping that after next week’s program, Easy Inexpensive Haircuts, he will always be beautifully coiffed. So if you want to save a few dollars, there’s still time to register for this program.
It's time to start thinking about the upcoming holiday season. We have Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. MCPL has books on holiday decorating to entertaining and cooking those delicious meals to carry you through the season. So plan those festive parties.
MCPL is having a program for a decorating idea called Beaded Christmas Tree on December 10th (Registration is required). And don’t forget all the great holiday stories, music, and movies. MCPL has it all.
Not long ago, I was thinking about how much I like working at the library. For many years, I've told people that I love library work because I am able to look myself in the mirror every morning and know that I'm making the world a better place. I love library work because we help people think critically. We help children learn to read and to be successful in school. We help people acquire knowledge. We help people navigate and understand information. In short, we help people improve themselves. Why wouldn't you feel good about that?
We’re having another fun program this week at Riverside. This Thursday, November 10 at 7:00 p.m., come join us and learn how to prepare creative gift tags.
