Into to the iPad
Tuesday, June 11 at 7:00
The library is offering an "Intro to the iPad" class led by Dick Many on Tuesday, June 11th at 7:00 pm. Imagine being able to page through websites, write and send email, read your favorite book, flick through your photos or watch a movie – all on a beautiful multi-touch screen and all with just the touch of a finger…no cables attached. This free class will introduce you to this incredible device, both the iPad and the iPad Mini, and will cover getting started, adjusting some of the important settings, using "apps” such as Safari (the iPad web browser), email, Facetime, the camera, maps, the virtual keyboard and some of the other applications that make using the iPad more enjoyable. This class is open to those that already have an iPad and those that are thinking of getting one. Feel free to bring your own iPad with you and share what you enjoy about it. This class is limited to 15 participants and will last about 90 minutes. Please register at the library's front desk or by calling 539-5176.

Featured Artist for May and June
Photographer Dave Gorke is artist of the month for May and June at the library. Dave’s photos are of his travels around the country with his wife, Carol. He started in 1983 when photography was still done using film and a darkroom. Dave took his first photography workshop in 2001 in the Shenandoah Mountains in Virginia and used what he learned there to make quality images ever since. He has had some of his images published and has sold them in galleries and from his own studio. His travels have taken him to 47 states to photograph nature in national parks and other scenic areas. His images at the library attest to the beauty of America and his skill as a photographer.
