You're never too old to learn! On Saturday, February 22, Andy McQuillen from G-R school will be offering a session on using apps. This will be held from 10:00 to 11:00 at the library (note one hour before we are actually open for business). This is a free class open to the public. Also, on Wednesdays, high school student Tyler will be at the library from 2:00 to 3:00 to do troubleshooting and program installation for anyone needing help with tech devices. This is offered on Wednesdays that school is not let out early. The next time will be Feb. 26.
February 11 was the third Tuesday in a row that school had a late start due to the extreme cold, but we had a few kids come to the 10:00 story time. The next story time will be held on Tuesday, February 25 at 10:00. Kristy Giesking will do the program.
