The library recently received a grant for a laptop lab in order to provide more computer training around the community. The Computer Lab is supported by a grant from the Washington State Library with funding from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Thanks to the grant we have purchased 9 laptops. The library is currently scheduling a series of basic computer classes. Wed. September 19th Computer Basics will be held at the La Conner Retirement Inn from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the private dining room. Tuesday, September 25th Surfing the Internet will be held at the Library from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. These classes are all free, but limited so call the library to sign up.
New books are always arriving. If you like a light cozy mystery, try one of these off the new book shelf.
Damsels in Distress by Joan Hess. A Renaissance fair descends on Farberville, while Claire, nervously contemplates her marriage to police detective Peter Rosen. She finds plenty of distraction when Edward Cobbinwood, a member of the Renaissance fair group, confides that he has come to Farberville in search of his long-lost father. Fearing that her late, unlamented husband, Carlton, was Edward's father, Claire spends time with the fair's organizers, hoping to discover the truth. A house fire claims the life of a mysterious woman named Angie, and the subsequent murder of a talented artist complicates everything.
