Lego Robotics Academy -- 3 More Classes in February

We have scheduled 3  additional classes in February, and they are listed below:

Elementary Legos (K-4) Session 1  Thursday, Feb. 12  5:30
Mindstorm Legos (5-8) Session 1   Thursday, Feb. 19  5:30
Elementary Legos (K-4) Session 2 Thursday, Feb. 26  5:30 (This class a follow-up session for children who have already taken the Session 1 class.)

 Space is limited, and reservations are being taken now. 

In each class, children will be working in 2-person teams to build and program a basic robot.  The younger children will be using the Lego WeDo kits, while the older ones will use the Lego EV-3 Mindstorm materials. 

This is a great way to take the Lego experience to a more advanced level and learn a little about basic robotics.  Parents are welcome to stay and enjoy the fun.

The class will last no more than 3 hours, and class size is limited to 10 students.  Seats will be assigned on a first come-first served basis.  For more information or to reserve a seat, call the Library at 706-283-5375. 



Second Session of Writer's Workshop Set for Feb. 5

On Thursday, February 2, at 6 p.m.,  we will host the second part of the  "book shepherding" class designed to help aspiring authors learn more about publishing their work. 

"The Book You've Been Meaning to Write for Years" will be taught by published authors William Bray and Bowen Craig, owners of Bilbo Books Publishing Company in Athens.

Seats are not restricted, but you need to reserve a space so that the presenters will be sure to have enough handouts. Give us a call at 706-283-5375 if you have questions or plan to attend.

Dept. of Labor Unemployment Assistance

The Library partners with the Georgia Department of Labor to provide unemployment assistance.  Every other Tuesday, a DOL representative is on-site from 10-3 to help with unemployment claims, questions, job searches and other matters provided by the DOL office in Athens. The scheduled dates for December are:  Dec. 16 and 30.  

The DOL representative works with patrons on a first-come, first-served basis.  No appointments are accepted, nor can she accept phone calls during the time she is here.

Library staff can help with initial unemployment applications, resumes and job searches throughout the week as staffing levels permit, but there are some steps to the unemployment application process that must be completed by the DOL. To make sure staff is available to help with a resume or application, you might want to schedule an appointment first.

For more information, give us a call at 706-283-5375.

Another Successful Year!

The 2014 Holiday Giving Program surpassed all previous years -- more than $7,000 was donated to the Library for materials and programs! 

Many, many thanks to all of you who helped provide this much-needed support by making a tax-deductible donation. 

Each donor also receives a year-long membership in our Friends of the Elbert County Public Library, so new members should be hearing from the group soon to confirm contact information.

As part of this year's program, a special donation was made to purchase a lovely book shelf for our New Book collection.  This new piece of furniture is now in place, and we love it!

 It's never too late to make a donation, and we really appreciate all the support from our community.
