At the Library for December 08, 2015

Updated 2015/12/07

New this week is the Blu-ray and DVD release of ‘Selma.’ For all of its flaws (Oprah’s polarizing presence, a mostly British cast, and the producers inability to secure the rights to Martin Luther King’s actual speeches), Selma remains a cinematic marvel–expertly telling the story of Martin Luther King’s dangerous and terrifying campaign that culminated with an epic march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama in 1964.

Readers of all ages can be inspired by Daniel Lipkowitz latest book ‘LEGO Awesome Ideas.’

Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11:00 am, 1:15 pm, & 6:30 pm, and Toddler Story Time is 10:00 and 11:00 am. Both will be all about Mittens

FOOD FOR FINES: For the entire month of December, the Library will be accepting donations of nonperishable food as payment for overdue fines. One item will be worth one dollar of fines. Any canned or boxed nonperishable food items will be accepted. All donations will be delivered to the food bank throughout the holiday season. This is a great way to get rid of those pesky overdue fines while helping others in need.

We cover many topics including Basic Tablet usage, Basic Computer usage, Windows 10 training, Window 8 + 8.1 training, Window 7 training, Microsoft Suit training, Library E book training, and much more.
