E-Mail Basics Computer Class

Perhaps you have an e-mail account but haven't used it in some time, or maybe you have never had an e-mail account before but would like to begin to receive mail electronically. If you are interested in getting an e-mail account and becoming familiarized with how to use your account to keep in touch with family members and friends, we invite you to our free E-Mail Basics computer class next Monday, August 20 @ 5:30 pm. No registration is required, and you don't have to have an existing e-mail to participate.

Summer Reading Summary

Now that our Summer Reading Program is officially over, and everyone is coming in to get their prizes (by the way, if you haven’t gotten your prize, come to the Reference Desk before August 18th to get it), we at the Evelyn Meador Library thought it might interest our patrons to find out how our Summer Reading Program went. As such, we decided that we would share some of our statistics for summer reading and show how great our summer went.

Creating a Resume

Do you need help creating a resume to use during your job search? Adults are invited to our free Resume Class on Monday, August 6 at 5:30 PM where participants will be able to create a basic resume. Please bring previous job employment dates, names, as well as job duties and descriptions which will be used to create a new resume or update your existing resume. It is recommended to bring your e-mail information or a USB drive to e-mail or save your resume. 

If you are interested in checking out our physical and e-materials with resume tips and ideas, make sure to browse our catalog.

Have a FOMO? You Probably Should.

FOMO, as I’m sure you all know, is a Fear of Missing Out. It generally refers to the fear that people are going to do something fun without you and afflicts pretty much everyone at some point. If you’ve ever been worried about not being at a game, missing dinner, or have been stressed about what’s happening at home without you, you’ve had FOMO. So, let me tell you right now, if you don’t plan on going to the Evelyn Meador Branch Library this week, you are definitely MO’ing (Missing Out, if that’s not clear).
