Book Discussion - The Good Neighboor

Thursday September 19th at 6:00pm – Book Discussion

Adult Program

“The Good Neighbor: The Life and Work of Fred Rogers” by Maxwell King

The Good Neighbor, the first full-length biography of Fred Rogers, tells the story of this utterly unique and enduring American icon. Drawing on original interviews, oral histories, and archival documents, Maxwell King traces Rogers’s personal, professional, and artistic life through decades of work, including a surprising decision to walk away from the show to make television for adults, only to return to the neighborhood with increasingly sophisticated episodes, written in collaboration with experts on childhood development. An engaging story, rich in detail, The Good Neighbor is the definitive portrait of a beloved figure, cherished by multiple generations.

Computer Questions I'm Too Embarrassed to Ask

Saturday October 12th at 10:00am –“Answers to Computer Questions You Are Too Embarrassed to Ask”*

There are so many basic questions about computers that people do not know the answers to, but think that everyone else does!  If any of the following questions are in that category for you, this may be just the right class to feel a little less perplexed.

·         When do I right click with my mouse?

·         What is a Browser?

·         What is the difference between RAM and a Hard Drive?

·         What is the Escape Key on the keyboard used for?

·         What is The Cloud?

·         What are Megabytes vs. Gigabytes vs. Terabytes?

·         What is a Chromebook?

·         What are the signs of a fraudulent email?

·         Many others … and bring some of your own!

*This project is made possible in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered by the Connecticut State Library.
