Volunteering with the Arts & Crafts program

Last week's Arts & Crafts program attracted an abundant number of participants!

One of the mom's shared these thoughts following the program (summarized):
She thinks people come as much for the teacher
who loves doing the art class as for the project. Our volunteer and board member Dianne Koehler teaches these weekly classes for adults and children.

We thank our talented volunteers for sharing their enthusiasm!

Chess Club by Volunteer Tom Baylor

Chess enthusiast Tom Baylor volunteers to instruct a Chess Club at the library. The Chess Club is open to all ages and levels of experience. He developed his own chess curriculum after years of playing as a hobby and teaching others.

Chess Club takes place the first Tuesday of every month from 5-6pm in the meeting room of the kid's department. Come join us!

Computer Basics Class taught by Volunteer Alison Matte

On May 16, 2009, the library hosted a computer class called "Computer Clues: A Hands-on Basics Class."

Taught by our talented volunteer Alison Matte, we experienced an overflow of attendance! Basic computer parts and functions were explored as Alison guided participants through examples and exercises. Participants helped each other, laughed, and asked many questions.

Alison will teach three more computer classes within the next two months. Check out the library's website for
more information!
