JANUARY 5, 2006

Happy New Year Everyone! 2006 has finally arrived and the staff of the David A. Howe Public Library is looking forward to another terrific year.

We hope you will visit us in 2006 for exciting print materials, newly released movies, high-speed Internet access and stimulating programs.

We worked hard in 2005 to provide you with all of your information and technology needs. We also strived to offer great customer service and educational support for life-long learning. We intend to do the same in 2006.

On Thursday, January 12 at 7 pm, the library will be hosting an interesting program called, Digging Up Your Roots. This is a two-hour workshop that will teach participants different ways to find information about family history on the Internet. Participants will need to register for this program at the library, as space is limited.

Additionally, on Tuesday, January 17 at 7 pm, the library will be offering a book discussion on Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. Participants must read the book before attending in order to receive the full benefit of the program. Registration is also required for this program.

On Monday, January 23 at 7 pm, there will be a desktop publishing computer course which will focus on creating professional looking documents through basic computer programs.

Another computer course will be held on Monday, January 30 at 7pm. This course will instruct participants on finding magazine and journal articles from the library’s electronic databases. Participants must register for both courses in order to attend.
