Teachers Needed!

At the Maud Marks Library, we are so grateful for all our volunteers.  We have them shelve books, do data entry, scan books, and more.

Right now, the Maud Marks Library needs ESL tutors.  We need people willing to teach adults English on a volunteer basis once a week for at least 9 months.  You don't need to be able to speak another language to teach ESL, in fact, we would prefer if you didn't!  All you need is a willingness to help new immigrants become acclimated with the American way of life.

We will be hosting a tutor training session on Saturday, September 3 at 9 AM.  There is no charge for the session or the training materials.  We'll even feed you lunch!

Please consider joining our very active and important ESL community.

Summer Reading Program Success

Thanks to all the readers and volunteers that participated in the 2011 Summer Reading Program.  We had a very successful turnout  and lots of kids will be going back to school having kept up with their reading skills.

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.
