Cake Decorating Class set for March 19

The Library will hold another of its cake decorating classes for adults on Thursday, March 19 beginning at 6:00 p.m. 

Karen Hardy will be showing us how to make fun and attractive cake decorations.  This class fills up fast, so call soon to reserve a space.  Our number is 706-283-5375.

There is no charge for this class, and you will take home the cake that you decorate. Participants will get a chance to practice using decorating frosting and tips to create desserts that will impress family and friends. 

 

 

Lego Robotics Classes

Two Lego Robotics classes are planned for the week of Spring Break.  They are:

Mindstorms (Gr. 5-8)  Wed. April 1  2 p.m. (no fooling)
Elementary Robotics (Gr. K-5) Thurs. April 2  2 p.m.

These classes are meant for those who have not yet taken one of the robotics classes.  Each child will have the chance to work with another team member to build a robot and then program it to move using simple computer coding instructions.

Class size is limited to 10, and the classes fill up fast, so give us a call at 706-2835-5375 soon if your child would like to participate.  Parents are welcome to stay and enjoy the fun.

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 March and April are:  March 10 and 24; April 7 and 21.  

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.

Does Elbert County Need Its Own Writer's Group?

The writer's workshop classes held earlier this year were quite successful, and attendees suggested that we encourage the formation of a local writer's workshop which would meet monthly here at the Elbert County Library.  If you are a poet, aspiring novelist, working on family memoirs or just want to practice and learn more about writing from your peers, give us a call and we will work on finding a group moderator and getting things set up.  The number here is 706-283-5375 -- Ask for Anne or Jan. This could be fun!
