Help Growing Fruits and Vegetables!

The seed catalogs and gardening catalogs are arriving every day in the mail and you might be thinking of trying something new this year. A strawberry patch? Some dwarf apple trees? Your library has books and other resources to help you get started. An online resource that is often overlooked is the County Extension Agent. Here is a link to the Extension's Fruit and Vegetable site!

Tech Talks and Library eBooks

We had 13 people come to the library this morning with their eReaders, Kindles, and laptops to learn the basics about how to borrow digital eBooks and audiobooks from the library. Some folks wanted to know how to burn a digital audiobook to a CD, and one person wanted to learn how to create a blog! I'd like to send out a big "Thank you" to everyone who came. Your enthusiasm and interest in the "digital branch" of your library was infectious.
The library will be offering more Tech Talks in the future, so be sure to give us a call or write an email and let us know what you would like to learn about.

For those of you who own Kindles and could not make it this morning, here is a link to some basic instruction.
