Come One, Come All...

 Is your New Year off to a good start? Did you get an e-reader for Christmas?  Have you been cleaning out the house and now you are trying to get rid of some books? If so, donate them to the library for the upcoming book sale being held this Saturday, January 12, 2013. 

OR, if you still love how a book feels in your hands, come to the book sale and buy as many as you can carry. There has been a change in some of the pricing so don’t be surprised if things are a little more valuable than they used to be.  However, you will still find some great bargains. There are books, magazines, audiobooks, videos and DVD's. All proceeds go to help fund library activities and programs here at the Maud Marks Library. So, come one come all...Saturday, January 12, 2013, from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.

Your New Year's Resolution

There is no need to go out and buy  books on diet, getting organized, exercise, or money management.  We have them here. Our large selection of current titles will make your New Year's resolution a bit easier to achieve.

New Year's Resolution: Learn Microsoft Word

Did you resolve to learn more about the computer in 2013?  We can help you with that.  On Tuesday at 7 PM we will be offering an Introduction to Microsoft Word.  Learn how to change your font around, format your Word document, and more!  If you can't come this Tuesday, this class will repeat itself on Tuesday, January 22 at 7 PM.  Seating for our computer classes is limited by our number of laptops, so sign up today!  Click here to sign up for this class and see what else we have to offer at the library.

Resolution: Read More!

If your New Year’s Resolutions list includes reading we have a great suggestion.  Get more out of the experience by joining one of our three book clubs – Mystery, Evening and Afternoon.  The Evening book club meets the 1st Monday of the month at 7pm.  The January 7 book is Sarah’s Key by Tatiana de Rosnay.  The Afternoon Book Club meets the 2nd Thursday of the month at 1pm.  The January 10 is reader’s choice - pick your favorite biography.  The Just Desserts Mystery Book Club meets the 3rd Wednesday of the month at 2pm to enjoy desserts and the latest mystery.  We’ll be discussing

Happy (almost) New Year!

Even though schools are closed remember that the library is open!  Here at the Maud Marks Branch the only difference in our regular hours is that we close at 5 pm on Monday, December 31 and are closed on New Year's Day.  There are no programs when we're closed but we have plenty going on for the next couple of weeks including family movies at 2 pm on weekdays through Jan 7 and story times for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers.  You don't have to have a library card to attend programs or visit the library so feel free to bring your guests too!  Don't forget that we also have a variety of eBooks and eAudio materials that you can check out whether we're open or not; all you need is a library card.
