The Adams County Public Library and Adams County Genealogical Society invite you to attend a free, one-day Genealogy Workshop at the North Adams Library on Saturday, Aug. 8 from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. This workshop is open to everyone, including experienced hobbyists, and those considering researching their family tree for the first time.

In the morning, Becky Reed from the Genealogical Society will present a workshop about researching your family tree, available resources, best practices and avoiding mistakes. In the afternoon, each participant can get hands-on help beginning their own genealogy project, or working on an existing project. AmeriCorps technology trainer Melissa Downs will provide assistance with the computer skills needed to research genealogy online, and highlight the resources available through the Adams County Public Library, including Ancestry.com and Heritage Quest. The workshop is free, but seating is limited, so please call Melissa at 937-587-2085 to reserve your seat.

Teens ages 10 and up are invited to join Deborah at the Manchester Library on Monday, Aug. 10 at 2:30 p.m. for a Movie Party. On Thursday, vote from our ballot of popular choices to select your favorite movie, and we’ll watch the movie that wins the most votes. Teens ages 10 and up are invited to join in activities at the library every other Thursday at 3:30 p.m. after school. We talk about books, make group crafts, create projects, eat snacks, and enjoy being with friends. The teens meet at the Manchester Library on Thursday, August 13.

Kids and parents are getting ready for the next school year, and we’re offering Back to School drawings and activities at the library. Now through Aug. 14, kids pre-K through grade 12 can play a disk drop game to win a school supply item each time you check out books at the Peebles Library. We’re giving away folders, notebooks, composition books, colored pencils, crayons, rulers, and more. Each time you check out a book at the Peebles Library, enter your name in one of six drawings for backpacks loaded with school supplies, a lamp, alarm clock, scientific calculator, and more. Thanks to the Peebles Magazine Club for sponsoring these school supply giveaways.

At the North Adams Library, kids pre-K through grade 12 are invited to enter their name in a drawing for one of two backpacks, fully loaded with back-to-school supplies. We’ll hold the drawing to choose the winners on Friday, Aug. 14.

At the Manchester Library, kids and teens can draw to receive a free school supply once per day. We’re giving away notebooks, glue sticks, pencils, folders, and more. Kids pre-K through grade 12, enter your name in one of four drawings for a backpack loaded with back-to-school supplies. We’ll hold the drawings for four winning names on Monday, Aug. 10, so you’ll be ready for the start of school in the Manchester district on Aug. 13. School starts in Peebles, North Adams, and West Union on Aug. 19.

All four Adams County Public Library locations are open from 10 a.m.- 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and from 10 a.m.- 5 p.m. on Friday and Saturday.
