Fun Pinterest Program Tonight! & Reminder Of Upcoming Library Closings

Fun Pinterest Program Tonight!

Did you know the library hosts several Pinterest programs each month?

We do!

And the next Pinterest program is tonight (11-20) from 5:30 to 7:00 PM.

Feel free to pop in for part of the program tonight; or indeed any time we are hosting a Pinterest event if you can’t quite make the 5:30 start time. Each Pinterest program features the creation of some type of delicious food and the creation of some cool item like homemade coasters or hot plates.

Tonight host Jenn Gaylor will be assisting attendees in creating Special Acorn Treats and DIY Stamped Tea Towels.

Here a link to Pinterest showing the delicious looking Acorn Treats:

And here is a link to Pinterest that shows the cool looking stamped tea towels which would make neat holiday gifts (of course, they look so cool I bet  you’ll want to keep them for yourself and later make a batch to give as holiday gifts!):

And we do ask that if possible you RSVP for any Pinterest event– simply so we know how many treats to plan on making and much in the way of supplies we need to create the special creation item being made!

So please RSVP via phone 607.684.0361 or email belab@stls.org – Thanks!

Reminder Of Upcoming Library Closings: This is of course not strictly a tech related item – except of course for the fact that you won’t be able to access any of our onsite tech resources on the days we are closed. However, if you have any Internet connection you can always access e-books, a-audio books, e-videos, e-music titles and databases via our website found at SSCLIBRARY.ORG!

The Library will be closed on Thursday, November 22 in observance of Thanksgiving. We will re-open at our usual opening time of 10 AM on Friday, November 23. We’ll also be open our regular hours of 10 AM to 4 PM on Saturday, November 25.

And then the library will be closed for a week from Sunday, November 25 through Sunday, December 2 so that all the ceiling tiles in the library can be replaced. No physical library materials will be due during the week that we are closed for ceiling tile repair. However, if you wish to return your materials during that week you can place them in the big green book drop located next to the Tioga Avenue entrance to the library.*

Have a great day!

Linda R.

*The exception to this return in the book drop rule includes all our circulating e-readers and laptops – please do not place those in the book drop – instead please either return those items prior to the week we are closed or after we re-open on December 3. Thanks!

Pinterest App Now Available & At What Age Should You Get A Child A Cell Phone

Pinterest App Now Available: USA Today reported this morning that Pinterest has just released an app for both Android and Apple devices. The app may be downloaded for free from Apples App Store or Google’s Play Store.

And here’s a link to the USA Today article titled simply Pinterest Launches iPad, Android Apps:

http://www.usatoday.com/tech/news/story/2012-08-15/pinterest-ipad-android-apps/57066900/1

At What Age Should You Get A Child A Cell Phone: The New York Times offers an interesting article that speculates at what age you should get your child a cell-phone. The article notes that most families purchase cell phones for their kids when they are between 12 and 13 years of age and suggests that the cell phone should be a pre-paid phone so kids can’t inadvertently rack up large phone bills. Another option is to purchase a cell phone like the iPhone that has parental controls.

The New York Times article is titled Johnny’s First Phone: A Guide For Parents and may be accessed via the following link:
