Advice for Your Device

Sep 8
Monday 3:00 pm
Get the lowdown on your library's downloadables! Bring your mobile device (smartphone, tablet or e-reader) to one of our classes and get some advice and help installing the library's apps for e-books, downloadable audiobooks and e-magazines. Classes and apps are all free. Your gadget must have basic setup done (out of the box, set up, passwords entered, charged and know the basics) as a prerequisite to this class. You will need your library card and PIN, and you may need the password for your App Store on your device. Pre-register.

Homework Hideout

Need a quiet place to study? No space in your room to set up books? We’ve created a quiet space with Internet and limited free color printing, common school supplies and a community mentor to encourage students to create school work that they can be proud of! Open Monday-Thursday for students in grades 4-12.

Volunteens

Teens in 6th through 12th grade can come and volunteer their time to help out with various library projects. Please stop by the library for an application form and have it signed by a parent or guardian prior to your first meeting.
