Many of our customers come to our branch to learn how to begin their genealogy search. Unfortunately, many of us here at the Riverside Branch are not experts in this subject. But we do have a very excellent resource available to us, the Midwest Genealogy Center, which is a part of the MCPL system. Starting in January of 2012, we will begin an evening series of genealogy-related topics taught by the expert staff from the MGC.
Boardwalk Writers: A Little Bit of NaNo All Year Round
Writing is a solitary art form, so we at the Boardwalk Branch have begun a writing group to provide support and encouragement for your writing process. Boardwalk Writers meet once a month to explore topics such as the writing life, generating ideas, the publishing process, achieving goals, and more. We also will share feedback on our writing. All brands of writers are welcome, so no matter what you write (memoir, fiction, romance, thrillers, children’s books, documentaries, or whatever), you can find a place in this group.
The sweetest things in life are often the most simple. Once a month people from the Buckner area get together at the library and learn to do a craft that is easy, cheap or free, and fun. While we are crafting away, we talk about everything under the sun and thoroughly enjoy ourselves. It's a time when we leave our troubles behind and laugh and play.
Attention shutterbugs! You probably already knew that your library is a great place to find books and reference materials on photography...but starting later this month, it’s also a great place to learn more about the craft and share your photos with others. Starting January 24, the Photography Forum will meet on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 7:00 p.m. at the Lee’s Summit Branch.
I am NOT a winter person. I love the snow, but I just can’t handle the cold. I wear layers upon layers to stay warm all winter long. Nothing warms my bones more than a wonderful, tasty hot cup of soup. I have to say, creamy potato is my favorite. After a full day of work, I get my book, a hot cup of soup, and enjoy the tranquility.
Watching the news never really worried me until I moved to Kansas City. Now, I should tell you that we sure have our share of heinous events going on Back East, but news broadcasts here seem to relish in the macabre. Maybe, it’s just me.
The first monthly Heritage Scrapbooking class was a rousing success! We had 27 scrapbookers ranging from the absolute-never-scrapbooked-before beginner to the nearly-professional. From the comments received, it seems that everyone had a great time, and there are already several people signed up for next month’s class.
