Library resumes tech assistance sessions
The Sam Fore Jr. Wilson County Public Library will resume technology assistance sessions in August. Each session is one hour and is tailored to the individual’s needs. Sessions can include help with your computer, cell phone, tablet, e-reader, iPad, and more. Learn word processing, spreadsheet, and PowerPoint skills, how to clean up and maintain your computer, free virus protection, editing pictures, how to use Facebook, email, Craig’s List, or eBay, and more. You must email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 830-393-7361 to set up an appointment. All sessions are by appointment only.
The library now has Leap Pads and software that you can check out for your child to use at home. There are six Leap Pads and 36 different software cartridges. You may check out five cartridges for each Leap Pad checked out. To see which software cartridges are available, you may look them up in the catalog at https://wcpl.biblionix.com/atoz/catalog/.
We are also extending our summer reading program to the end of the summer. Pick up a reading log at the front desk and when you complete it, bring it in to choose a prize from the treasure chest or a food coupon good at Whataburger or Subway. You can also continue to build your Wandoo Robot with the minutes that you read at https://wandooreader.com/wilsoncountylibrary/2014-robot.
On our webpage, http://www.wilsoncountylibrary.org/, you will find a link to our Lego Challenges. There are 51 challenges. Complete the challenge and submit a photo of the product along with the number of the challenge, your name, and age. We will publish the photo on the webpage of that challenge (using first names only).
Other information on our webpage includes the recipes for the various ice creams from our Ice Cream Freeze Off in July, information about Teen and Adult Book Clubs, various resources for career, early literacy, eGovernment resources, legal and law related research, small business information, and more. Under our FAQ link learn how to download e-books from the library to your Kindle and more. There are also links to the Makerspaces projects that were done this summer.
