When you see the words “Program at the Library,” what do you think? Story Time? Summer Reading Club? Something to keep the kids busy?
Those are all good, but we offer more than just programs for kids. We have programs for patrons of all ages and interests, and they’re all free.
Most weeks we offer at least one program for learning basic computer skills. The classes are taught by our technology specialist, Samantha. These classes are hands-on programs where the students (that would be you) have the chance to follow along with the instruction in our computer lab. Space is limited for each class, so you have to sign-up in advance.
Samantha also teaches seminars on how to use eBooks, eReaders and eAudiobooks. These classes are specific to the type of device you have, and you are encouraged to bring your device with you to the class. You do not have to sign up for the e-Device classes.
Because people asked for it, we have developed a movie-of-the-month series. On the fourth Saturday of each month at 1pm, we will be showing a free movie. Light refreshments are served and movies will vary from month to month.
Because people seem interested in learning new crafts or learning new techniques for crafts they pursue, we would like to start a UFO Program (UnFinished Objects) during which we would provide the space, and members of the public would come to the library to scrap-book, knit, crochet, quilt, bead, and more. You bring your supplies and interest and we provide the space. We also have books and magazines about a lot of crafts. Who knows, maybe you will be introduced to a new craft by another member of the group. We need your help to determine when we should hold the UFO Group. Would you be more likely to attend during a weekday evening or a Saturday afternoon? Stop by the Reference Desk and let us know what you think about the UFO Group, or other program opportunities at the Boulder City Library.
For more information about all of these programs, please visit the Boulder City Library, our website www.bclibrary.org, or like us on Facebook at facebook.com/bouldercitylibrary.
