We are having such a great time falling into books these days. We hope that you are too. It is a wonderful experience to find a really great book to read, wrap up in a comfy blanket on the couch and read while sipping hot tea. Or cocoa, cocoa works too. If you are like us librarians, we like to just read, and read, and read. Do you have a favorite time of day to read?

The library is in full fall swing and getting ready for (gasp) winter. As always we have some great things going on here at the library. Our monthly offerings include our Free Basic Skills Computer Classes which are offered on the first Monday of the month at 2pm. Class size is limited to ten persons and are on a first come, first served basis. We also offer Toddler Time on the first and third Mondays of the month at 11am. We love having toddlers and their caregivers come to the library for stories and coloring. We also have Lunch & Learn offered on the fourth Wednesday of the month. This month’s Lunch & Learn program set for Wednesday, October 28th, at 12 noon, will be presented by Mrs. Margaret Welch, who will be speaking about the Women of Tennessee book. Please remember to bring a lunch, the library will provide drinks and dessert. This promises to be a very informative meeting and we invite everyone to join us for Lunch & Learn of Wednesday, October 28th.

Happy Reading!

A blank piece of paper. That is what I’m staring at, a blank piece of paper. Or if you want to get really technical, I’m staring at a blank piece of paper on a computer screen in a word processing program. Why am I staring at a blank piece of paper? Because I can’t think of anything new to say in this week’s Library Corner article. There is a full schedule of events this month. Maybe I should list those? We have Toddler Time on the first and third Mondays of each month at 11am. The basic Skills Computer Class is offered on the first Monday of each month at 2pm. Oh yes, we will be having Lunch & Learn on Wednesday, Oct. 28 at 12 noon in the Meeting Room. Our guest speaker will be Mrs. Margaret Welch, who will be speaking about the Women of Tennessee book. We are looking forward to having Mrs. Welch with us for this exciting program. Please remember to bring a lunch, the library will provide drinks and dessert. Well, this information should at least make a bit of an article to submit to the newspaper. I’d better get typing . . .

Happy Reading!

Technology is a wonderful thing. It really is. Except when it breaks, but that is a totally different story. We love learning about new technologies here at the library. We are constantly trying to keep up with technology trends here and serving our patrons as best as we can with the technology questions that we get on a daily basis. We are, by no means, experts, but we will try to find an answer for you.

As technology improves, so does the use of social media. We like using social media here at the library. We, of course, love using the weekly newspaper article here in the Brownsville States-Graphic. It is always fun to write and submit an article highlighting library services. We also have a blog. We use our blog to complement what has been written in the weekly newspaper article. The blog address is: http://www.elmarosslibrary.wordpress.com

There is so much information available on the internet these days. Access to good information is vital to everyone. One way to get this information out is by having a website. The Elma Ross Public Library has a website. The website address is: http://www.elmarosspubliclibrary.webs.com You will find our contact information as well as links to our on-line catalog on the Home page of the website. The other tabs have information about our fines, and fees, information about our Friends Group, and a Comments section.

One cannot mention social media without mentioning Facebook. We know that a great many people have Facebook pages. Well, the Elma Ross Public Library, the Friends of Elma Ross Public Library, and the Haywood County Reading Railroad each have their own Facebook pages. Look us up and become one of our friends.

Happy Reading!
