Adult Winter Reading: A Wonderland of Winter Reading

Please join us for A Wonderland of Winter Reading--The Adult Winter Reading program.

Winter is the best time to read! The world slows down and you can catch your breath--lose yourself in a good story.

For every two books read or listened to (or 10 books read to a young person) you can submit an entry for weekly prizes.

You'll need to stop in the library on occasion to submit your entry....and watch for Oatmeal Cookie Day on January 17th!

CALL FOR YOUR ARTISTIC EXPRESSION: Not in Our Town Essay and Art Show
Following the horrific action of one individual on October 27 of last year, at the Tree of Life Synagogue, thousands of people from across the country and world responded with love and kindness. Our Library community was no exception. Countless parents and caregivers have asked “how can we help?,” and “how can we continue to show our kids that this is not the way we want to live?” In 2019 and beyond the Shaler North Hills Library will be consciously and deliberately making an effort to provide opportunities for discussion, growth, caring and sharing. We are providing an opportunity for children, tweens, teens, caregivers and adults to express their thoughts and feelings through artistic expression, be it through the written word, photography, sketching or even fingerpainting. We will be accepting entries during the month of January at the Youth Services Desk in the Children’s Department. Visit the art on display in our Community Room beginning February 1. Join us for a closing reception on Friday, March 1 at 7:00pm. We are better together!

New Year, New Device: Tech Help Sessions

Your daughter bought you that new Kindle to read eBooks; your son bought you an iPad so you can stay in touch with the grandkids. Feeling overwhelmed? Let the library staff help you out! We’ll be offering several sessions where you can bring in your new electronic device (laptop, tablet, ereader, Kindle, phone) and get you up and running. Bring your device, your charging cord, any log-ins and passwords, and your library card. All participants will be entered into a raffle for some fun ‘computer’ prizes too!

These are open sessions when you may arrive at any time during the two hours. Please register as space is limited.

Getting started on your device: Tuesdays in January (beginning the 15th) from 11:00am to 1:00pm.

Staff will guide you on the basics—how to get onto Wi-Fi, how to find and load apps, how to check your email, how to take and access your photos.

Adult Winter Reading: A Wonderland of Winter Reading

Please join us for A Wonderland of Winter Reading--The Adult Winter Reading program.

Winter is the best time to read! The world slows down and you can catch your breath--lose yourself in a good story.

For every two books read or listened to (or 10 books read to a young person) you can submit an entry for weekly prizes.

You'll need to stop in the library on occasion to submit your entry....and watch for Oatmeal Cookie Day on January 17th!

CALL FOR YOUR ARTISTIC EXPRESSION: Not in Our Town Essay and Art Show
Following the horrific action of one individual on October 27 of last year, at the Tree of Life Synagogue, thousands of people from across the country and world responded with love and kindness. Our Library community was no exception. Countless parents and caregivers have asked “how can we help?,” and “how can we continue to show our kids that this is not the way we want to live?” In 2019 and beyond the Shaler North Hills Library will be consciously and deliberately making an effort to provide opportunities for discussion, growth, caring and sharing. We are providing an opportunity for children, tweens, teens, caregivers and adults to express their thoughts and feelings through artistic expression, be it through the written word, photography, sketching or even fingerpainting. We will be accepting entries during the month of January at the Youth Services Desk in the Children’s Department. Visit the art on display in our Community Room beginning February 1. Join us for a closing reception on Friday, March 1 at 7:00pm. We are better together!

New Year, New Device: Tech Help Sessions

Your daughter bought you that new Kindle to read eBooks; your son bought you an iPad so you can stay in touch with the grandkids. Feeling overwhelmed? Let the library staff help you out! We’ll be offering several sessions where you can bring in your new electronic device (laptop, tablet, ereader, Kindle, phone) and get you up and running. Bring your device, your charging cord, any log-ins and passwords, and your library card. All participants will be entered into a raffle for some fun ‘computer’ prizes too!

These are open sessions when you may arrive at any time during the two hours. Please register as space is limited.

Getting started on your device: Tuesdays in January (beginning the 15th) from 11:00am to 1:00pm.

Staff will guide you on the basics—how to get onto Wi-Fi, how to find and load apps, how to check your email, how to take and access your photos.

CALL FOR YOUR ARTISTIC EXPRESSION: Not in Our Town Essay and Art Show
Following the horrific action of one individual on October 27 of last year, at the Tree of Life Synagogue, thousands of people from across the country and world responded with love and kindness. Our Library community was no exception. Countless parents and caregivers have asked “how can we help?,” and “how can we continue to show our kids that this is not the way we want to live?” In 2019 and beyond the Shaler North Hills Library will be consciously and deliberately making an effort to provide opportunities for discussion, growth, caring and sharing. We are providing an opportunity for children, tweens, teens, caregivers and adults to express their thoughts and feelings through artistic expression, be it through the written word, photography, sketching or even fingerpainting. We will be accepting entries during the month of January at the Youth Services Desk in the Children’s Department. Visit the art on display in our Community Room beginning February 1. Join us for a closing reception on Friday, March 1 at 7:00pm. We are better together!

Not in Our Town Essay and Art Show

Following the horrific action of one individual on October 27 of last year, at the Tree of Life Synagogue, thousands of people from across the country and world responded with love and kindness. Our Library community was no exception. Countless parents and caregivers have asked “how can we help?,” and “how can we continue to show our kids that this is not the way we want to live?” In 2019 and beyond the Shaler North Hills Library will be consciously and deliberately making an effort to provide opportunities for discussion, growth, caring and sharing. We are providing an opportunity for children, tweens, teens, caregivers and adults to express their thoughts and feelings through artistic expression, be it through the written word, photography, sketching or even fingerpainting. We will be accepting entries during the month of January at the Youth Services Desk in the Children’s Department. Visit the art on display in our Community Room beginning February 1. Join us for a closing reception on Friday, March 1 at 7:00pm. We are better together!
