We hope you are all familiar with the many programs the Wead Library offers to the public. Just this summer we have had magicians, story tellers, therapy dogs, poets and so much more. We love making our beautiful, historied building a place for the community to gather and share a wonderful time as well as occasional enlightenment! We do our best to make you aware, through our Face Book page, our website and local radio and newspapers. But…..we have other exciting programs that happen on a recurring basis here at the library, with little fanfare and lots of enthusiastic participants. So today’s post is the remind you of some of these regularly repeating programs that are all free and offer a warm welcome to those who attend.
Every Wednesday we have Tech Talk from 2-3:00 pm. It is on a first come first serve basis. What do we do in Tech Talk? We help you to make friends with your new devices, whether they are phones, laptops, tablets, etc. Just recently we helped someone set up an account to read the many free books offered through the Northern NY Library System for Clinton, Franklin and Essex counties. We’ ve helped folks set up email accounts, learn how to handle wifi, deal with Windows 8 and 10 and so much more. We are not IT graduates here but we have a pretty good reputation for helping out the digitally challenged. If you are having issues with your device or PC, we are here for you, almost every Wednesday afternoon.
Another recurring program is our craft group. They meet on the first and third Saturdays at ten o’clock. Members bring their knitting, crocheting, embroidery, sewing, beading and questions and answers for each others projects. It is an easy group, no rules and a pleasant way to relax on a Saturday morning. It’s always fun to get together with those who share our passions.
On September 9th our Family Movie Nights will start up again on Friday nights at 6:00pm. Watch the Malone Telegram for details. Snacks and covered beverages are allowed. Some bring their sleeping bags and pillows, too! Bring friends and family to share a movie night together up on our third floor (stair access only.)
On the last Saturday of each month our Teen Group regularly meets. Pizza and projects are part of the fun. September 24th at 11:00am will be our first meeting and it is open to all teens. We’d love to see you there!
And last but not least, our annual Fall Book Sale is coming fast. It promises lots of bargains and fun for those who love books and a bit of thrifty shopping. Mark your calendar for the weekend of October 7th and 8th. Donations are being accepted now for the book sale and will be stopped one week prior. Thank you to all who so generously contribute.
If you have any further questions regarding any of these recurring programs just call one of our friendly staff at 518-483-5251. We are here to help.
Happy Fall Reading!
The Staff of the Wead Library
