SEPTEMBER 29, 2005

Next week we will be welcoming in the month of October and what better way to celebrate than by attending a book discussion at the library. On Thursday, October 6 the library will be hosting an adult book discussion about the book, "The World is Flat". Alfred State College Professor Bob Albrecht will be leading the discussion. This book talks about the many issues facing the United States today in regards to a global economy. Tom Friedman, the book’s author, brings to light that globalization has already occurred and international boundaries have become irrelevant. Friedman states, "a flat world is actually a connected world". The discussion will begin at 7 pm in the Monday Club Room.

In addition, the library will be holding an introductory computer course for those individuals who would like to setup and learn how to use e-mail. This course will take place on Monday, October 3 at 7 pm. The course will give people the opportunity to set up a free e-mail account through the World Wide Web and begin sending messages to friends and family. E-mail is a great way to communicate because it avoids costly postage and telephone charges. The only tool you need to send and receive e-mail is a personal computer. The David A. Howe Public Library has seven computers that people may use for free.

A book signing and discussion will occur on Thursday, October 13 at 7 pm. Local author John Bullock will be discussing his newest book, "Under a Friendship Moon". Mr. Bullock wrote the book based on his experiences growing up in Allegany County. The book features a relationship between a man, who is battling alcoholism, and his dog. Many readers will be able to relate to the story because of its local flair. The story takes place in the 1960’s in the neighboring town of Friendship. Copies of the book may be purchased at Fishers Pharmacy in Wellsville to be signed by the author on the night of discussion.

This "Spotlight on the Library" article was written by Brian Hildreth, the David A. Howe Public Library director. Articles are written and published monthly in the Wellsville Daily Reporter.
