The Cloud

SATURDAY, JULY 27TH @ 10AM - 12PM

Understanding and Using "The Cloud"

 

So what is “The Cloud” anyway?  The Cloud refers to the sharing of data and programs over the Internet.  Here are some common examples of using the Cloud:  Sharing files or photos, backing up important data, keeping track of your schedule using Google Calendar, using online versions of Word, Excel, PowerPoint and other popular programs, using Google Docs to create and collaborate on documents, using Amazon to access your music library from anywhere, and so on.  What are the advantages of using the Cloud?   Is the Cloud safe?   Concepts and usage of the Cloud will be demonstrated and discussed.  Come and finally understand what is meant by “The Cloud”!

Word - The Fundamentals

In this class we will discuss the fundamentals of using Microsoft Word, the best-selling word processing software.  If your goal is to become more capable using Word, this class is a great place to start!  We will discuss Word’s “User Interface” so that you are able to get around the program comfortably.  We will extensively discuss how to create a document, how to navigate around your document, and how to edit the document.  We will also cover cut/copy/paste.  No prior word processing knowledge is necessary, but a basic knowledge of computers is helpful.

Book Discussion: Where the Crawdads Sing

 

 

Thursday 8/15 at 6pm
Adult Program

Adult Book Discussion “Where the Crawdads Sing” by Delia Owens.

For years, rumors of the "Marsh Girl" have haunted Barkley Cove, a quiet town on the North Carolina coast. So in late 1969, when handsome Chase Andrews is found dead, the locals immediately suspect Kya Clark, the so-called Marsh Girl. But Kya is not what they say. Sensitive and intelligent, she has survived for years alone in the marsh that she calls home, finding friends in the gulls and lessons in the sand. Then the time comes when she yearns to be touched and loved. When two young men from town become intrigued by her wild beauty, Kya opens herself to a new life--until the unthinkable happens.

Pre-School Preschool

 

 

Special Program: Pre-School Preschool
August 20th – August 24th from 1pm – 2pm

If your little one is starting school or childcare this year, one of the struggles can be breaking into a new routine.  We will be offering a 1 hour program for 5 days to help get accustomed to some of these new routines. Pre-school preschool is essentially a longer version of library story time with a couple differences that may help when transitioning to school/childcare.

Parents/Caregivers can bring their child to the Program Room of the library at 1pm. Adults are required to stay in the library the entire time their child is here, but you are welcome to wait outside of the program room so that it mimics the habit of school “drop-off/ pick-up”

We will go through a relatively typical routine of story time, circle time, a craft, and a small snack. This way your child may feel more familiar with these activities at school.

At 1pm parents and caregivers will be welcomed back in to “pick up” their child.

 

A Few Things to Make Pre-School Preschool Work Best

 

Children must be over 3 years old or turning 3 in 2019.

This program will be limited to only 10 children.  This is the typical ratio within a childcare facility for children over the age of 3.

Please make sure you can attend at least 3 of the 5 days

 

Please make sure you are close by in case your child needs a familiar face/ in case of emergency. Again, Adults are required to stay in the library the entire time their child is here, but you are welcome to wait outside of the program room so that it mimics the habit of school “drop-off/ pick-up”
