  • NEW at the Library
    The Library has many online resources for you to use from downloading a book or song to learning a language. Sometimes it may be overwhelming to try to learn which resources are most useful to YOU.

    The Library now has quick tutorials on how to get started on some of these resources. In most cases, there is a short introduction with additional videos on how to get started. Instructions on how to download books also include specific devices. You'll  see them on the Resources and Databases and Downloadable Books as a nifty side slider page! And within those pages, there are also links to the tutorials. We hope they will help you!

    We will list here tutorial additions on using social media programs:

    Fine Art Exhibit - September 11 - October 31
      "At the end of a session when the student discovers how creative they can be, I know I have done my job.

    I enjoy the enthusiasm the elderly, as well as others, love to explore and hone a new skill. I'll take my students as far as they want to to in their art.

    My personal favorite style is that of the Dutch Masters. The glazing process, one layer of paint over another, gives a recognizable glow that cannot be achieved without patience."
