Big things are happening at the Leon Valley Public Library, have you heard?
FIRST....we have an institutional membership to ANCESTRY.COM. What this means for you is that for FREE, you can get into Ancestry when you are at the library. Key words, at the library. I would suggest you bring your laptop or device (rather than use our computers which have time restraints). Simply by logging into our WiFi, you gain entrance to Ancestry. It is our IP address that authenticates your device. Open our website at leonvalley.lib.tx.us and at the very bottom of the page is a banner ad/link. Simply click and you are IN!!! Or....if you are in the library right now and reading this, click here.
Naturally, classes in learning to use Ancestry follow, so mark your calendars for Friday February 10 at 3pm, Friday March 10 at 3pm and Wednesday March 22 at 1pm. Make one or all, each class will be different. We are hoping that a group emerges to simply get together and search together, sharing tips and tricks that we learn.
Want to learn Spanish? Come join us on Wednesdays from 5-6 pm to learn some basics. It's not necessary to come to each and every session, pick and choose what works for you.
MAKERSPACE EVENT for kids of ALL ages! During Spring Break, we will be having a BIG EVENT on Wednesday, March 15 and again on Thursday, March 16. 1pm - 4pm each day. Coding, creating apps, video game creation, sythesizers, mechanical Lego, catapult competition, ozobits, Little Bits, stop motion video, 3D design and printing.....something for everyone - heavily tech oriented. COME spend your afternoons with us!
If you haven't been to your library lately, stop in and say HI! We have so much going on for kids and adults. We'd love to get to know you better!
