The last session for the “Weekly Computer Fun Class” will be held on Wednesday, February 29th from 2:00-3:00 p.m. in the library meeting room.
The topic for this class will be “eReaders”.
Anyone is welcome to attend this free class. Be sure to bring your eReader along with and your laptop (if necessary for downloading with the type of eReader you have).
We will be available to answer questions about how the “Nebraska Overdrive” system works. This system allows library patrons to checkout eBooks and audiobooks, using their eReaders.
This class is also for people who do not have eReaders yet, but are curious about how they work. The library currently has two eReaders available for checkout, that are preloaded with books from many different genres. We will have those available, for patrons to use. We look forward to seeing you there! 🙂
As of February 10, 2012 eBooks that are published by Penguin (loaned for reading on Kindle devices) will need to be downloaded to a computer and then transferred to the device over USB.
For library patrons, this means Penguin eBooks borrowed through the library Overdrive subscription will no longer be available for over-the-air (wireless) delivery to Kindle devices or to Kindle apps. Here is a link with some helpful instructions: http://www.amazon.com/kindletransfer 🙂
Be sure to attend horticulturist Luddenne Perry’s free gardening class at the library on Thursday, Febr. 16th at 7:00 p.m. in the library meeting room. The topic this month is “Starting Seeds for Your Garden”.
Luddenne will cover things such as:
- when to start your garden
- what soil to use
- artificial lights vs window sill
- potting on
- when to transplant
Do you have photos or documents you want to email to someone or maybe want to save to a flash drive? The library just added a new scanner that you can use for that. We also just added a new color laserjet printer. Be sure to stop in or call us for more information! 🙂
Want to learn how to make a clever photo album that is easy and fun and can be used in many different ways? Sign up for the “Flop Box” craft session(s) on February 6 at 1:30 PM or 3:30 PM. Cost is $3.00 and everything you need will be supplied. Boxes work great for gifts, in lieu of a card for someone in hospital or nursing home, kids’ projects, and more! 🙂

The next Computer Fun Class will be related to the topic of how to upload pictures that you have taken, from your digital camera, to your computer. Then we will cover what to do with the pictures, once you have them on your computer.
This will include fun things like: editing them a little bit, publishing them on websites like “Facebook”, and emailing them. If you have a laptop or an Ipad computer, be sure to bring it along with. The library has a few extra computers for people to use that don’t have one. This free class will be held in the meeting room from 2:00-3:00. Look forward to seeing you there. 🙂
