ON THE LIBRARY
OCTOBER 21, 2005
The season of autumn is now upon us and the people of Wellsville are
embracing every moment of it. I had the honor of participating in my first
Ridgewalk this year and I must say it was worth every heart pounding
moment. The 5K was an absolute thrill. The air was crisp and clean, the
participants were joyful and the spirit of community was alive. I look
forward to next year’s event and I know that everyone else does too.
I am also looking forward to the many programs taking place at the
library in the next few weeks. Some of these programs will include two
book discussions by area authors, a career building workshop, several
computer training classes and exciting games of Scrabble™ during the
library’s new Scrabble™ Group. Just like the community of Wellsville, the
spirit of the library is very well alive.
On Thursday, October 27 the Adult Educational Opportunity Center will
be offering a free career building workshop. The workshop will take place
between 3 and 7 pm. This workshop will aid participants in making
strategic choices for advancement in current careers or continuous
education. Services will include assistance with forms necessary for
college admissions and financial aid, referrals to additional funding
sources, transportation and daycare services, distance learning, resume
building and credit for life experience. You must register for the program
by calling the library during regular library hours or visiting the
Additionally, the library’s new Scrabble™ Group will be meeting on
Thursday, October 27 to play the relaxing and therapeutic game of
Scrabble™. Research shows that the game of Scrabble™ enhances both mental
and physical capabilities. By playing Scrabble™, players of all ages can
improve reading and writing skills as well as strengthen muscle mass. The
game is also a good way of alleviating pain associated with arthritis. The
group will be meeting at 6:30 pm in the Living History Room.

|Local Author Mark
Phillips will visit the library to read from his biography, My Father’s
Cabin and discuss his new novel, Ten Cents of God Help Us.
My Father’s Cabin tells a wonderful story about the relationship
between father and son and the conflicts that arise when ideas and view
points differ. The story proves extremely powerful when readers realize
that although the struggles between father and son are quite common, bonds
are formed that can never be destroyed. All members of the family can
relate to this touching truth. The reading will take place on Thursday,
November 3 in the Monday Club Room. The reading begins at 7 pm.
The library will also 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, November 7 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.
Lastly, writer Colette Shaw will be discussing her most recent book,
Won’t Get Fooled Again, which came out in spring of 2005. Won’t Get
Fooled Again is an excellent romance and mystery novel with a heroine
whose professional success seems assured - as long as she overcomes her
secret attraction to a rock n’ roll musician. The novel’s main star will
take you on an exciting tour of mystery and chaos, which leads to an
unexpected result. This is an inspirational story that encourages readers
to be true to themselves and have the courage to follow their dreams. The
discussion takes place on Thursday, November 17 at 7 pm in the Monday Club
