What's All This Swiping and Tapping, Anyway?
Are you confused about the new technology everyone seems to be talking about? Do you want to catch up with your grandchildren? Then join us for Sip & Swipe Café! This is a no-pressure series of programs on using tablets, geared especially to seniors. There will be something hot or cold to drink, depending on the weather, and coaches to help you as you work through the self-paced tutorials to handle and use email, and lots more.
Watch for flyers in the Library once we get dates set up, we hope to start this fall. No need to have your own tablet, you can participate using one of the Library's devices. Registration will be required, as we can accommodate only a limited number of learners at a time.
Homework Help Now Available
Are you a K-6 student in the North Rockland Central School District who needs help with homework? Starting October 19, we will be offering Homework Help at the main library. Hours are Mondays, 6 pm - 8 pm and Wednesdays, 6 pm - 7:30 pm. To check in, please come to the Children's Desk. No appointments necessary! For more information, check out our flyer.
Note: Homework Help is not a replacement for professional tutoring or parental supervision. Helpers cannot be held responsible for children's homework. Homework Help will not be in session on days the North Rockland Central School District is closed.
Thank You All Around!
Thanks to those who donated Haverstraw Middle School and James A. Farley yearbooks to fill some gaps in our collection. This is an on-going project, so if you have older yearbooks from North Rockland schools, we'd be happy to provide a home for them. Contact Cathy at 786-3800 ext 22 for more information.
E-books: More Availability than Ever!
In response to your frustration with having to borrow and download popular titles, all of the libraries in the Ramapo Catskill Library System (RCLS) are working together to make more content available sooner. You can read e-books on an e-reader, tablet, smartphone or other device, and on your desktop computer as well. The same goes for e-audio, for the most part. Stop by the Reference Desk, and we will be glad to show you how it works, and help you get started.
Feeling a Little Run Down?
Your devices, that is. Charge 'em up at the Library! We have USB charging stations in the Reference, Children's, Teen and mid-level computer areas. Forgotten your charger or power cord? Come to the Circulation Desk and check one out. Cords can be borrowed for 3 days. We'll get you back to full strength in no time!
