Learn About 3D Printing!

With the holidays going on, our 3D printing orientations have been a little less consistent lately. However, The Evelyn Meador Library is proud to say that that has changed now. We'll be back on schedule with orientations on January 26th and February 9th at 2:00.

These sessions are open to all ages. The orientation session will introduce participants to 3D printing in the library, with information on where the county's 3D printers are, how to sign up to use them, how to create 3D projects, and how the printers work. Those completing the class will be able to schedule time on the 3D printer to print your 3D objects.

Thursday, January 24th at 4 PM – Community Craft – Hot Glue Snowflakes [7+]

 

Hot glue is used for a variety of different purposes.

We will be using it to sculpt snowflakes of whatever shape and size that you would like.

If you want, you can even paint it.

The flurry of fun starts at 4 PM on January 24th in the Library Community Room at the Parker Williams Branch Library.  

The Best Books I Read Last Year (Non-Fiction Edition)

I told you guys that these next two blogs were going to be purely self-indulgent. I'm turning “books I like” into a workable (worthwhile is still under debate) theme, and we're rolling forward into non-fiction. These are the books I read and loved this year. I’m not saying they’re the best of the best, but they’re the stories that stuck with me and now I’m sharing them with you. I've got some for all ages, and maybe even interests, here, from picture books all the way up to adult. 

 

 

 

Help the Library better serve you!

January isn't just a time for people to try to figure out what they can do better. Libraries like to do it too! Help us to better serve you this year by letting us know what your favorite programs of the year were. On our list below are some of our best attended programs of 2018. Let us know what you loved, and if there are other programs we did that you liked, let us know by writing them in! We'll try to take that information to do more of what our community loved as we plan our programs this year.

The Best Books I Read Last Year (Fiction Edition)

I think we can all agree that 2018 gave us some good, and not so good, things. It did, however, produce some pretty amazing reads. So these next two blogs are purely selfish, I must admit. I mean, can “books I like” actually be a worthwhile theme, and if so, is it worthwhile enough to dedicate two weeks to? You never know until you try is my motto, so let’s do it. This week it’s about fiction, and the books I read and loved this year. I’m not saying they’re the best of the best, but they’re the stories that stuck with me and now I’m sharing them with you. I've got some for all ages, and maybe even interests, here, from picture books all the way up to adult.
