FEBRUARY 13, 2006

The month of January was busy at the library. We were able to offer ten different programs that were attended by 340 patrons. Some programs included: Digging Up Your Roots a genealogy workshop, Fahrenheit 451 a book discussion, a magic show featuring Moreland the Magician and several Web-based computer workshops.

In addition to offering great January programs, the early part of February offered two grand lectures in tribute to Black History month and Women’s Rights. The library would like to thank all those who participated.

The exciting news is programs have not stopped here at the library. We are half way through February and we still have two beneficial programs remaining.

The first program is hosted by the Adult Educational Opportunity Center. Cheri Clark will be available in the library’s Local History room from 3 – 7 pm on Thursday, February 23 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.

The second program is a computer course that teaches patrons about researching New York State newspapers from the library’s databases. Patrons will learn how to save time and money by using this free and easy to use Web resource. In order to attend, patrons must register at the library or call (585) 593-3410.

If these programs are not of interest, do not worry. The months of March and April promise to be very educational and engaging. Some of our upcoming programs include: Shopping and Selling on E-Bay, a lecture on the history of Allegany County, a book discussion, and several computer courses.
