Library Talk – February 1, 2018


Library Talk, February 1, 2018

Thanks to everyone that came to the Maple Syruping discussion last week—I’m told that this week with the below freezing temps at night and the above freezing during the day are ideal for getting the sap to run, so good luck to all that will be out there ‘tapping away’.

This Saturday at 10:30 a.m. we are going to explore the options of ‘cutting the cable cord’.  We hear from patrons all the time how expensive it is getting to keep even basic cable, and there are alternatives! Our Matt Carpenter has cut his cable cord, knows the various subscriptions and options, knows what equipment you need to be successful in the transition, and wants to share this information with you.  The interest in this program has been very good, so we are planning to hold the discussion in the roomy annex next to the Ripley library. Just a reminder, Matt is also available for in person one-on-one computer/phone/tablet help on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. at the Ripley library—no question too small—

Russellville Branch library is rearranging their storytimes to better accommodate patron’s schedules, so beginning in February, the preschool (ages 2-4) program will be on Thursday mornings from 10:00-10:30 a.m. filled with books, songs and activities. Homeschool program for children grades 2-6 will be on Fridays from 3-3:45 p.m., and the activities are fun seasonal and science activities.  Both classes are limited to 10 kids, so please call the Russellville library to sign up at 377-2700.
