Sandy library sets 'how to use' classes
Sandy and Hoodland Library Director Beth Scarth wants to spread the word: The library isnt just about books.
To help accomplish this task, a series of classes has been organized to teach library users how to find anything in the physical library (books and periodicals) and in digital collections (CDs and videos as well as audio and ebooks).
Library staff will teach the classes as long as there is a demand for them, Scarth said. The classes will be held in the community room in the southwest corner of the building.
Were covering three different topics, Scarth said, how to search the library catalog, how to use our online research tools, and how to use our downloadable audio and ebook source, Library2Go.
Classes are scheduled as follows:
1. How do I find it in the library catalog? from 3:30-4 p.m. each Wednesday, starting Sept. 12.
2. How do I use Library2Go the Libraries in Clackamas County (LINCC) source for downloadable audio and ebooks? from noon to 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 11, and from 10:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 22.
Future scheduling will depend on demand, and individual appointments may also be made. Participants should bring an ereader or audio device (and a notebook computer, if needed with the device).
3. What digital research sources are available via the librarys website? this class is an overview of whats available at lincc.org, including resources recently added in July from 4-5:30 p.m. each Thursday, Sept. 13, 20 and 27.
To get a LINCC library card, come to a LINCC library with picture identification and proof of local address. To obtain a card, anyone under the age of 18 also must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.
