••• LEARN TO USE CANVA Reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired to learn to use Canva, a free de­sign pro­gram, to be held at the Cen­tre­ville Branch on Aug. 3, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. Do you need fresh, eye-catch­ing mar­ket­ing tools for your busi­ness? Don’t want to in­vest in an ex­pen­sive and com­pli­cated de­sign soft­ware? Then try Canva. Stop in the Li­brary for an in­for­ma­tive ses­sion that will walk you through the fea­tures of Canva’s free ver­sion. You may reg­is­ter at www.qa­cli­brar y.org.

••• MATI­NEE MOVIE The Cen­tre­ville Branch will hold a free mati­nee movie in August and Septem­ber, both at 2:30 p.m. The August movie on the 11th will be, “King Arthur: Leg­end of the Sword,” and on Sept. 8 we will be show­ing, “The Mummy.”

••• CHANGES ARE COM­ING

Both county li­braries are join­ing other pub­lic li­braries on the Eastern Shore to create a new Shore-wide cat­a­log and there will be dis­rup­tions tak­ing place. • Both li­braries will be closed all day Aug. 8 and 9 for staff train­ing. • No holds on items will be taken Aug. 1-17. There will be no ac­cess to the in­ter­li­brary loan sys­tem Aug. 1-23. • Start­ing Aug. 9 you will not be able to ac­cess your ac­count on­line. • From Aug. 11 through Aug. 16 we will only be able to check-out items, and pa­trons will need their li­brary card to check-out. There will be no check-ins or holds placed and we will not have ac­cess to pa­tron records. • Both branches will open at 1 p.m. on “Go Live Day” on Aug. 17. HOW THESE CHANGES AF­FECT YOU: • All li­brary mem­bers must save their read­ing his­to­ries and lists by Aug. 9. Af­ter that date, all read­ing his­to­ries and lists will be deleted due to the tran­si­tion. Li­brary staff can as­sist you with this. • There will be no li­brary ma­te­rial due be­tween Aug. 8–21. Do not re­turn ma­te­ri­als dur­ing that time. It will be a great help to us and you will not be charged fines. • In the new sys­tem your de­fault PIN will be the last four dig­its of your pri­mary phone num­ber. BEN­E­FITS FROM THIS TRAN­SI­TION: • Eas­ier and more ef­fi­cient Shore-wide search for ma­te­ri­als. • Eas­ier ac­cess to 2.1 mil­lion items. • Faster de­liv­ery of re­served ma­te­ri­als. Thanks for your pa­tience dur­ing this time and if you have ques­tions be sure to ask the Cir­cu­la­tion Desk. Ques­tions may be phoned in Mon­day through Thurs­day, 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., Fri­day and Satur­day 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., or Sun­day 1 to 4 p.m. Call 410745-0980 or 410-643-8161.
