For those interested in our Next Chapter grant programming, please note that there will be no workshops for May, but we want to remind everyone that we are still offering our one-on-one classes on using Ancestry Library Edition, which is freely available on all our public computers.
Ancestry Library Edition has been getting a lot of use here, and we know some of you are bound to run into roadblocks in your research. So sign up for a class and we’d be happy to help you fill in the gaps in your family tree.
The transition to Enterprise, our new library catalog, will soon be complete. If you haven’t done so already, you’ll want to familiarize yourself with searching, placing holds, and managing your library account in Enterprise.
Contact us with any questions and take a look at this handout, which shows you what you’ll see on a search results page and within the record of an item.
Reading and Relaxation Group
Miss Kate’s Reading and Relaxation group read “How Full Is Your Bucket” and designed their own yoga journals that highlighted ideas on what they would do to fill a friend or family member’s bucket. Many colorful pictures were displayed in their journals. We ended our class with a fun game of Downward Dog freeze tag. Great work group.
