August happenings at the Wead Library!

Summer is winding down but the activity continues at our library. First, a reminder of our “summer hours” being in effect. We are now open from 10:00am to 6:00pm on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Thursday’s hours are 10:00am to 8:00pm, the only evening we are open later. On Saturday it is our usual 10:00am to 3:00pm. These hours will continue until Labor Day at which time our regular schedule returns.

Children are getting ready for their return to school and the last opportunities for summer fun beg for our attention. It’s a time of family reunions, lots of water fun and hopefully a good book and a comfy chair in the cool shade. If you are looking for additional activities, check these out and if you have any questions just give us a call at 518-483-1251.

Our Needles and Hooks group continues to meet on the first and third Saturdays of the month at 10:00am. This group, formerly known as the Knitting group,  has expanded to welcome all who practice needlecrafts of any kind. There is a wide variety of experience and a helping hand whenever needed. Please feel free to join in the fun.

Did you know that every Wednesday we have “Tech Talk” from 2:00 to 3:00pm? This is when our staff are here to help you manage your electronic devices. Have a new Kindle or other e-reader? First time with a tablet? Come on in. We will do our darnedest to get you comfortable and skilled at working your new device. We are not IT experts here but various staff are skilled at various devices and can usually manage to help you quite a bit. So bring in your device, ask the questions and get more literate about our brave, new digital world!

This month the Wead Library Book Club will meet on Thursday, August 14th to discuss “The Rosie Project”, a book soon to be made into a movie.

On August 21st at 7:00pm in the evening, Nan Hoffman will grace us with a performance of a Family Concert. Please join in what promises to be a lovely evening of musical enjoyment with a gifted performer.

All of our programs are free and open to the public. We hope to see you there!
