ADAMS COUNTY LIBRARY NEWS

Free computer help sessions are available each week at your local library. The Adams County Public Library is participating in Guiding Ohio Online, a grant-funded program that places an AmeriCorps service member in the public library to provide free basic computer training to anyone in the community. This is the second year that the Adams County Public Library has been awarded the Guiding Ohio Online grant, and AmeriCorps member and Adams County resident Melissa Downs is returning to serve in the program as a technology trainer for a second term.

To make an appointment with Melissa for an hour of hands-on computer help, please call 937-587-2085. Assistance is available with basic and intermediate computer tasks, resume and job search skills, Internet skills, Microsoft Office tools, tablet and device questions, and other topics. Melissa will be at the Peebles Library on Mondays, the West Union Library on Tuesdays, the Manchester Library on Wednesdays, and the North Adams Library on Thursdays. This grant was made possible by the State Library of Ohio, Serve Ohio, and AmeriCorps.

The Peebles Library is planning to host local authors for a book signing on Wednesday, Oct. 14 from 5 -6:30 p.m. Stop by to meet Lisa Corum Fox, who will be signing copies of her book “Young Ulysses,” part one of “The Underground Railroad Roots of Hiram Ulysses Grant” series. F. R. Warnock will share his boys adventure tale “The Warrior’s Drum,” that tells the tale of a two hundred year old mystery, a missing Native American drum, and a curse. Jonah Kidder will share information about his book “The Caves of Adams County.” Stop by to meet the authors, purchase signed copies of their books, and learn more about their stories. The Peebles Magazine Club is sponsoring this event.

Congratulations to Angelica Planck of Winchester and Madison Richey of Winchester, who were the grand prize drawing winners during the Summer Reading Program at the North Adams Library. Summer Reading participants who met their Summer Reading goals were eligible to enter the drawings. Madison completed a reading goal at the kids level of over 400 pages, and Angelica completed the teens goal of over 600 pages, in order to enter the grand prize drawing. Nearly 70 readers in all met their Summer Reading goals this year at the North Adams Library. Many thanks to the Friends of the North Adams Library, who donated new bicycles as the grand prizes for kids and teens levels. Angelica and Madison selected their own bicycles from Wal-Mart.

The winner of the adult grand prize drawing was Nancy Farrell, who received a new Android tablet from the library. The Summer Reading Program runs during June and July at all Adams County Public Libraries, and all ages are eligible to participate. Sign up next summer at your local library.
