  • Join the iCrowd: Library offers Mac classes

     I ahave been very impressed by the Apple program beginning in the Carroll County School System.

    Each high school junior and senior will have the opportunity to receive a MacBook for use at school and, more importantly, at home. I am a huge fan of Apple products. You can come into my office anytime and see an iPod, iPhone or iPad connected or being used in some way or another. The products are intuitive, fun to use and very creative. But, they are also different. 

    A Mac and a PC do not work the same, which can be intimidating at first.

  • First Friday event celebrates watermelons with tastings

    On Friday night, Garrett organized a watermelon bash with demonstrations of watermelon dishes and a seed spitting contest.

  • Serving sweet foods can liven up any meeting

    Things have been a little strange lately, don’t you think?  With the heat for all of the country reaching well into the 100s and higher and all of us worrying about what Congress was going to do about the budget. On top of that, at the time of this writing, we have had no rain.

    It is only natural that people might just be a little testy. Actually, I think everyone has done well  considering how long  we have been dealing with all of this.
