On Tuesday April 14th @ 5:30 pm the Wayland Free Library, in conjunction with the Alzheimer’s Association, will be hosting a presentation on The Challenges of Alzheimer’s Disease in our Aging Society. The guest speaker will be Dr. Mark Mapstone, Associate Professor of Neurology at the University of Rochester Medical Center.
In an effort to make this presentation available to other member libraries and their patrons, the presentation will be Webcast via GotoMeeting.
If Whitesville patrons are interest we will host this program via web cast. Contact the library through FaceBook, email, phone or stop in to show your interest.
DUE TO LACK OF REGISTRATIONS PATRICE WILL NOT BE AT THE LIBRARY ON 4/18. WE WILL NOT BE SCHEDULING ANY MORE WORKSHOPS UNLESS WE HAVE 4 OR MORE PERSONS WANTING TO ATTEND REGULARLY. Patrice Haskell will be joining us again on Saturday, April 18th, from 9:30-11:30 for another card making workshop. Please contact the library to pre-register. A door prize will be given to someone at the class.
Card making is an easy craft, so if you are looking for a Saturday activity with your child bring them to the card making workshop. The theme for April will be spring and Mother’s Day.
I am pleased to announce that after 9 months of organizing and planning, we as a Library System are ready to launch Freegal Music Services. Effective today, Freegal Music is available to library patrons throughout the five-county area via our web link https://stlsny.freegalmusic.com. Member libraries are encouraged to include this link on their website to provide patrons user-friendly access. Our targeted System “Go Live” date was July 1st. However, STLS IT staff has done a wonderful job of collaborating with Library Ideas to provide this service two weeks early.
I am extremely proud of all our libraries for recognizing the advantages of this service. In order for public libraries to remain relevant, we need to offer exciting and innovative services that engage all people within our communities. Together, we have worked collaboratively to offer something System-wide that many other library systems in our State have yet to provide. We all deserve a loud round of applause!
If you have any questions, please feel free to call or write.
Have you tried to read the Whitesville Newspaper on the microfilm machine at the library, got frustrated and gave up!! You no longer need to do that. Thanks to Roger Easton the Whitesville News is now online and can be searched at your convenience in the comfort of your own home. Find it at http://www.fultonhistory.com/Fulton.html . Whitesville News is on page 5.
Town historian, Roger Easton has now put the Whitesville News on a flashdrive so you can insert it in one of our public access computers to view without navigating the entire Fulton News site.
