Did you want to try your hand at something new and crafty?  You might be interested in our DIY craft series.  January 8 at 2 PM we will be making 3D snowflakes.

Did you want to track your ancestors and find out more about your past?  Bear Creek Genealogy Society will be here on January 18 at 2 PM to show you how it's done.

Computer Classes, Anyone?

We're Back 'Up'!

In case you couldn't get ahold of us online this morning, our servers were 'down' all over the County library system. But we're back up now and we'll be open until 5 pm. C'mon in and do what you need to do at the library this afternoon.

COMPUTER SKILLS ACQUIRED AT LIBRARY

As a Maud Marks patron I am happy to say that my computer skills have improved as I navigate through the databases.  I have been able to make requests from Harris County libraries as well as InterLibrary Loan.  I have been able to read many more of the Spanish language books I am interested in through this service.

Wonderful Wii Wevealed!

While I admit that I may be late in joining the Wii craze, I did jump on board last year and got a Wii for Christmas (Thank You Santa!). Personally, I never really thought of the Wii as anything other than just a fun gaming console with a more interactive style of play. Then, I found the "Nintendo Wii Pocket Guide" and suddenly a whole new world of possibilities opened up to me! I never imagined that I could use the Wii to check my emails or surf the internet! But I can!

Microsoft Office 2007: Making the Switch from Office 2003

If you're making the switch from Microsoft Office 2003 to 2007 or considering doing so, check out these interactive tutorials from Microsoft Office Online. The tutorials allow you to click on a command button in the 2003 program of your choice and it then shows you where that command button is now located in the new 2007 Office ribbon. The tutorials can also be downloaded to your computer for later use when you're not connected to the internet. Tutorials are available for Word 2007, PowerPoint 2007, Excel 2007, Access 2007, and Outlook 2007.

Are You a Dummie or an Idiot?

For DummiesI’m a Dummie!  I love using the For Dummies series of books whenever I need to learn about a new topic.  I’ve also on occasion used the Idiot’s Guide series.  (I don’t believe you are what you read!)  But, when it comes to learning about computer-related topics, the choices are even greater.
