ON THE LIBRARY
JANUARY 19, 2006
The David A. Howe Public Library is a magical place. Since 1937, the
library has offered the largest public library collection in Allegany
County and provided a continuous series of intellectual and entertaining
programs. The tradition will continue.
This month the library is proud to present Moreland the Magician’s
Spectacular Magic Show. Moreland has appeared on such shows as
Seinfeld, Friends and Becker. Now he is coming to
Wellsville with his fantastic magic tricks and witty jokes. Moreland is an
absolute "funny man." He will amaze children, young or old. This program
will be fantastic for the entire family.
After the show, Moreland will teach the audience different magic tricks
they can do at home. The show is free for everyone and begins at 7pm on
Tuesday, January 24.
In addition to hosting a magical evening, the library will be offering
an adult education and career building workshop on Thursday, January 26.
Cheri Clark from the Adult Educational Opportunity Center will be
available in the library’s local history room from 3 – 7 pm to help
individuals with career and education planning, admission and financial
aid information and forms necessary for entering college. This
program is free for everyone. Interested participants must call the
library to register or call 1-888-394-2362 toll-free.
On Monday, January 30 at 7 pm, the library will also be offering a
computer database course. This course will instruct participants on
finding magazine and journal articles from the library’s electronic
databases. Participants must register for this course in order to attend.
