Coins For Curtis

Posted by Michael Gorzka on February 2nd, 2016

I-love-curtis-libraryFebruary is LOVE YOUR LIBRARY month, and we’re excited to once again offer the COINS FOR CURTIS drive as a way for kids of all ages to support the Library’s Annual Fund.

Simply pick up a special COIN jar at the library (donated by Gelato Fiasco); fill it with coins anytime from February 1st – 28th; and return it to the library to receive a special Curtis Valentine.

All who return a jar will be entered to receive a $25 gift certificate to Twice Told Tales.

Then on Monday, February 29th (Leap Day!), we’ll invite some young helpers to the Cushing Street branch of Atlantic Regional Federal Credit Union to assist at a tally event by helping to pour the contents of the jars into the coin counting machine.

Those pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters really add up – last year over $1,000 in coins were collected and donated in support of purchasing new books and digital materials for Curtis for all to enjoy.

Tech Meetup: Evernote For Note-Taking Friday, February 5, 12 Noon

Posted by Michael Gorzka on February 2nd, 2016

evernoteEvernote is a note-taking website and/or app designed to help you stay organized. You can enter text, images, audio, scanned documents, files, and more to your notebook, synchronize everything across all of your devices (PC, Mac, smartphones).

But better yet, you can then quickly find anything with powerful search that can even recognize text inside your files and images.

Some users refer to Evernote as their “external brain”, storing anything and everything in one easily-searchable location. Today’s session will introduce the basics of using Evernote.

If you are interested in its potential use for recording genealogical records, come to part 2, taught by Liz Doucett on February 12, same time, same place.
