At the Li­brary

The Queens County Advance - - OP-ED -

Our new pro­gram guide is out and I want to high­light some of the pro­grams we are of­fer­ing in Novem­ber and De­cem­ber.

For adults, we are con­tin­u­ing our Wed­nes­day in­for­ma­tion se­ries on top­ics like Ki­jiji, Youtube and pod­casts, and also web ser­vice tu­to­ri­als. For kids, we are keep­ing our reg­u­lar af­ter­school ac­tiv­i­ties like Lego club, Poke­mon, Minecraft, and games club.

A new ac­tiv­ity will be li­brary mini-golf all day on Nov. 25. It is open to all ages. The course will set up through­out the li­brary and each per­son will win a prize.

We are also adding new pro­grams that uti­lize the vir­tual re­al­ity (VR) tech­nol­ogy we now have. An ed­u­ca­tional pro­gram that in­volves learn­ing about a topic and then ex­plor­ing it more in depth by ex­pe­ri­enc­ing it through vir­tual re­al­ity will be held on al­ter­nat­ing Wed­nes­days. On al­ter­nate Thurs­days, we of­fer a VR sculp­ture mak­ing class. Reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired for both pro­grams. The VR will also be used in a drop-in pro­gram with games club on Fri­days and each Wed­nes­day from 1-2 p.m..

Mark your cal­en­dar for the next trivia night. Af­ter the suc­cess of last month’s trivia night, we are pleased to an­nounce that we are do­ing it again on Nov. 30, 6-8 p.m. Put to­gether a team of up to five peo­ple or come alone.

Want to prac­tice your French? Our French story time has been changed to a con­ver­sa­tion class for peo­ple of all ages and skill lev­els to be held on Satur­days at 11 a.m.

These are just a few of the things we are of­fer­ing these two months. Pick up the new guide at the li­brary or go to our web­site to learn more.

Up­com­ing at the li­brary

All of our branches will be closed Nov. 11 for the ob­ser­va­tion of Re­mem­brance Day. Reg­u­lar hours will con­tinue Sun­day.

I want to give a big thank you to Jor­dan Pat­ter­son who has been vol­un­teer­ing here for the past year and of­fer­ing tech sup­port to pa­trons. He has been a great ben­e­fit to the li­brary. In the year he was here, he worked hard and was very pa­tient with ev­ery­one he helped. South Shore Pub­lic Li­braries and I wish him the best of luck in the fu­ture.
