Computer Classes @ Your Library

There is just so much going on at the Maud Marks Library right now.  Did you know that we can teach you how to search the Internet for information?  Just sign up for our Basic Internet class on Saturday August 20 at 10 AM.  More interested in finding those illusive ancestors?  We have a Genealogy Online class coming up on Tuesday, August 23 @ 1 PM.

If computer classes aren't your thing, we are still in the midst of our latest Job Search Seminar from 10 AM to noon.  On Monday, August 22 we will be discussing networking and Monday, August 29 we will be practicing interviewing skills.

So Mysterious!

Did you know that the Maud Marks Library has added a NEW book club for the summer.  Our mystery book club will be meeting on Monday, July 18 at 2 PM.  We will be discussing Grave Goods the third in the Mistress in the Art of Death series by Ariana Franklin.  Everyone is invited to join us for a discussion of this facinating and fun book.  There are extra copies behind the customer service desk.  And don't worry, you have plenty of time to read the book.  It's a really fast read!  Then, don't forget to join us again on August 8 as we discuss Dog On It by Spencer Quinn.

Don't Forget!

Don't forget, the Maud Marks Library will be closed on Monday for the 4th of July holiday.  Don't worry though, just because the building is closed doesn't mean the library is!  Do you need to renew a book or pay a fine?  Click here to go to our online catalog!  Do you need a book?  Find one in our digital media catalog!  Do you need a magazine article or to fix your car?  Check out our databases.  Want a book suggestion?  Read one of our book blogs.&nbs

Calling all Teens

Oh, the weather outside was frightful... but now it's so delightful! 

Remember that Mock SAT we were supposed to have at the Maud Marks Library back in February?  It got canceled due to the ice and (supposed) snow that week.  Not to fret though, we have it rescheduled!

Come visit us this next Saturday, April 2 at 12 PM- 4 PM to take a fake SAT under REAL testing conditions.  Now, to explain further, it is a REAL SAT test you are taking under REAL SAT conditions, it just won't count for or against you when it comes time to apply for college.

Then, the following Saturday, April 9 at 1 PM, return to the library to receive your score and tips on how you can do better.  This way, you can do your best on one of the most important test you will ever take.

If you were already registered for the February SAT, don't worry, a spot has been saved for you and you can just come this time around.
