Evelyn Meador library is pretty awesome!

Well, March has come and gone here at Evelyn Meador Library and we had some pretty amazing programs happen during the month. Did you get a chance to check out Miss Nancy’s International Storytime, or our new program for little makers. Don’t tell me you didn’t get a chance to go to the lavender farms and see the blue bonnets, or that you missed out on signing up for the April trip down to Galveston! How about taking a walk with Susan on Fridays? You can call me crazy, but if you missed the bath bombs program then you missed out on one heck of a maker program (we had a blast) and if you didn’t get to be all nostalgic with us while making slap bracelets then maybe you’re the one that is crazy! But, really, I don’t think you’re crazy; I just think that you need to check out all the awesome programs we have here at Evelyn Meador Library.

Did Santa bring you a new iPhone? Did you already have one and want to get better at using it? Are you thinking about getting one and want to see what the hype is all about? No matter what your stance, The Maud Smith Marks Branch has  got you covered.

We will be debuting a new class this month and it is all about the iPhone. Learn how to navigate around the phone. Learn the basics of using the pre-installed apps, downloading apps, and become efficient in using your device. Classes will run on January 9 at 10 AM and again on January 23 at 7 PM.

Downloadable eBooks

This tweet from Harris County Public Library makes a good point:  eBooks are convenient when traveling, especially when real estate (i.e. luggage space) is at stake.

Downloadable eBooks are available 24 / 7 at our eHCPL site.

Not sure how it all works? Kingwood Library is offering an evening eBooks for iPad class on April 19th from 6:30 PM- 8:00 PM. You can register for the class here.

New catalog access.

I would like to invite you to come browse our new touch catalog.  Today, we received an iPad that allows everyone to access our catalog with an iPad.  You will find it located on the column just inside the front part of the library.  If you can not find it, please ask.  It is a great technical toy to search the catalog while getting familiar with the iPad.

See you soon so you may explore the wonderful world of tech toys.
