Pick Up a New Skill at the Library

All the kids are going back to school, so why not pick up a few lessons of your own this month – at the Library? We don’t take attendance, give tests or grades. But we guarantee you’ll learn a lot. Here’s what’s coming up:

If you get hooked with that session or can’t come, the Library Center has a how-to series this fall. Members of the Springfield Bridge Center will teach an introductory course for adults at 6:30 p.m. on Sept. 17 and 24, and Oct. 1, in the Story Hour Room of the Library Center. Registration begins Tuesday; call 882-0714.

Can’t make it to a class? The Library produced two videos on how to download Library books to Nook and Kindle e-readers. Library instructor Trint Williams shows the simple downloading steps on That takes you directly to both videos on YouTube.

Some final, important words: Geezerfest! 7 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 8, Library Center patio. Rock on.
