Red Feather Lakes Community Library update for February 2012

In the throes of winter we’re offering a number of warm and fuzzy events at the library in February. You’re invited.

We’ve mentioned previously our new downloadable digital audiobook program – OneClickDigital. There are more than 3,200 titles available for download by means of your library card and in setting up an account. You can download these audiobook files onto your MP3 player, your PC, Mac and other Apple devices. This can be done through the library’s computers or your own internet connection at home.

By Creed Kidd, Library Director

We’d appreciate your assistance in testing this service – potentially a great one for the community – across a wide number of machines. If interested, please bring in your MP3, iPod or iPhone and we’ll assist you both in setting up an account and in conducting a download. If you’re familiar with iTunes downloads, that would be a plus.

Upcoming library programming:

We’re again touting the library’s new “Baby Time” program – geared for the very young, 6 through 24 months. Moms should plan on attending with the child. Together we’ll be sharing music, rhymes, books and fun. Held weekly, Thursdays from 10:30 to 10:50 a.m.

We’ll be presenting a classic, 1956 John Ford Western flick as part of our continuing series “Great Movies You’ve Almost Forgotten: A View-and-Discuss Series of Great Classic Films.” Sorry, licensing prevents us from publically announcing the title; however, you can call us at 970-881-2664 (or email at [email protected]) for complete information, including title. John Wayne stars. Feb. 8, 2 p.m. sharp.

The library’s monthly teen activity, Teen Zone, will be Feb. 11, 4 p.m. with dinner at 5 p.m. Main dish provided. Young adults, grade level 6 to 12 (or equivalent) invited. Sign-up necessary. Contact Karen at 970-881-2664 or [email protected].

Crystal Schimpf, tech trainer for the Colorado State Library, will be conducting a “Facebook 101” class Feb. 4, 1 to 3 p.m. If you’re new to Facebook – or want to learn more – this is a great place to start. Basic computer skills and a personal email address necessary. Limited to 6 participants with preregistration necessary.

The second tech program for the month is “Solving the Mysteries of Skype” which includes demystifying the popular, first-rate Internet calling, conferencing and video calling service. This will be a demonstration class for adults. Six participants maximum; pre-registration required. Feb. 18 from 2 to 4 p.m.

The library will host the first session of digital photography group on February 25, intended to be an informal exchange of ideas with all levels of experience. A wide range of relevant, introductory topics will be discussed. MAC and PC users welcome.
