ON THE LIBRARY
NOVEMBER 18, 2005
Wellsville received its first taste of winter last week. Snow fell from
the sky on a cold Thursday night and blanketed the ground to remind us
that the seasons have changed. When we awoke on Friday, our sidewalks,
porches, trees and cars were covered with snow. We all scrambled to find
our snow shovels and ice scrapers to clean off the walkways and our cars.
Some of us could not find our shovels or scrapers, so we had to use our
kitchen brooms to push away the snow. As our hands and noses turned red
from the cold air, we were quickly reminded of how cold winter can be.
Once the snow was removed from the walkways and the windshields of our
cars, we drove off to work and said, "Only four more months until April."
If you are looking for a way to escape the cold this winter, please
visit us at the library. On Thursday, November 28 there will be a computer
training course held in the library’s Reference Room. This course will
discuss ways for patrons to use the Internet to find important
information. Patrons will learn how to use search engines and web
directories to answer tough questions to everyday problems. Need to find
an old friend from college or high school? Trying to locate a good place
to visit during Spring break? Not sure where to conduct "safe" online
shopping? This course will be perfect for you. Call or visit the library
today to sign up for this informative and fun class. The course will begin
at 7 pm.
"Spotlight on the Library" article was written by Brian
the David A. Howe Public Library director. Articles are written and published
biweekly in the
Wellsville Daily Reporter.

|Another good day to
enjoy the library this winter is Thursday, December 1. The Pearl Quartet
will be performing in the library’s Reading Room to begin the holiday
season. The concert will highlight traditional and popular yuletide
carols. Many patrons will be able to identify with some of these memorable
sounds: What Child is This, Masters in This Hall, Silent Night and
Upon a Midnight Clear. Members of the Quartet include: Lisa Lindsay (1st
violin), Roxanne Rice (2nd violin), Ann Giddings (viola) and Jane Metzger
(cello). The Quartet will be accompanied by Virginia Vossler on string
bass. The performance will begin at 5 pm.
The Library’s Annual Trim-A-Tree party will take place on Saturday,
December 3 at 1 pm. The community is welcome to join us for an afternoon
of music, warm beverages, tasty goodies and a visit from Santa Claus. All
members of the family will enjoy this free holiday event. Children will
especially like the idea of decorating the library Christmas Tree.
Children are encouraged to bring in their own handmade ornaments to put on
the tree. The celebration is sponsored by the Friends of the Library,
volunteers and Library staff. We look forward to seeing you there.
Would you like to learn more about sending and receiving e-mail? The
Library will be offering an e-mail computer course on Monday, December 5.
