So far, so good on my resolution to post at least twice a week! Here’s what’s new and what’s coming up in Tri-town Library Land.
Best Buy staff will be at the Mattapoisett Library this Saturday, Jan. 7, from 11:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. to demo and answer questions about ereaders, tablets, and smart phones. Bring your new Christmas presents to the library to learn some hints or get your questions answered. Saturday, Jan. 28, they’ll be back for more demonstrations. Also remember that you can make an appointment for one-to-one help with your devices at Plumb Library. Or any other library, for that matter. It helps to make an appointment. Staff is not always available for drop-in help.
On Friday, Jan. 20, we will be holding a yarn and pattern swap for all knitters, and crocheters. Quilters are also welcome to bring material and patterns that they’d like to share. The swap will be held from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m., and refreshments will be served. We’ve received requests for a knitting group, so we’ll be asking for recommendations as to days and times that this would work for most people.
Thanks to The Wanderer for their article on our Cafe Parlez book group. If you haven’t seen it yet, click here. January’s nonfiction title is The Other Wes Moore, by Wes Moore. and we will meet on Thursday, Jan. 19 at 6:30. Cafe Parlez is reading Ann Patchett’s Bel Canto.
We are starting to require that you have a library card in hand when you arrive to check out material. This will bring us in line with other SAILS libraries, and will make sure that you know where your library card is, so that you can access the online databases, Overdrive, Universal Class, and the Encyclopedia Britannica, all of which require a library card number. Replacement cards are free for the month of January.
That’s it for now. Don’t forget, season 2 of Downton Abbey starts this Sunday on WGHB Channel 2. We have the complete season 1 on DVD, and will be getting season 2 as soon as it’s released. Have a great weekend!
