Library News

Dear Friends,
     We are back from our Archival vault shelving project and looking forward to serving you. We plan to have an open house in the spring to show off this enhancement to the building. I am so lucky to have a team of volunteers to help with documenting the many items. Contact Susan Chandler if you are interested in volunteering in the archives.
     I am very excited about our January history program: Peggy Walla, Forensic Document/Handwriting Examiner, will analyze the handwriting in some of the letters contained in the Archives on Thursday, January 16 at 6pm. I am eager to learn what their handwriting tells us about the character of some of our ancestors!
     The NML Book Discussion and YA for Adults Book Club are also scheduled for January. If you are interested in computer classes, please contact Susan Chandler at 979 732-5514. Save the date: Rebecka LaCourse, Colorado County Elections Administrator will have a demo of the new voting machines on February 3 at 5:30pm and Classical Guitarist Peter Fletcher will be performing on Thursday, February 20 at 6pm at the Live Oak Art Center. Tickets will be $10 each and can be purchased at the door.
     Preschool Storytime, Music and Movement and Lego Club are back at their regularly scheduled times and we've got a new weekly program called Code Club starting on Monday, January 27 at 3:30pm. Youth ages 8 and up will learn coding using Prenda software. This program was made possible through an IMLS grant. No preregistration is required to participate.
     Teen Anime Club and Movies round out our programming schedule.
     I hope to see you at the library. Happy New Year!

Susan Chandler
