CHESS IN THE GREAT HALL

If you like to play chess (or would like to learn how), and would enjoy doing so in a truly awesome setting, we've had a chess board set up in the Great Hall at Central Library (2nd Floor) for the last three months. While many persons use this board, very few people are aware that we have two more boards in ELB (Entertainment, Literature, & Biography Room) that can be used in the Great Hall or in ELB itself. What's more, when staffing allows ELB staff are willing to teach novices how to play.

The current slate of Veteran's Writing Classes runs from January 10th through February 28th (every Saturday from 10:30am-12:00pm).  This is a small writing and discussion class that focuses on writing assignments week to week, and then uses class time to critique assignments. There are currently four additional spaces available.  If you know of any veterans who might be interested in learning how to write about their military experiences, please have them email or call me.

NEW RELEASE TUESDAY

OK, it's too late to see tonight's film (Lucy starring Scarlett Johansson), but that's just the start of a great new film series at Central Library: New Release Tuesday.


You say that you're 40th in line to borrow a new DVD from the library? Can't get it on streaming or rental services yet? Come see that blockbuster the day it releases to DVD at Central Library. Bring your favorite movie candy and we'll provide beverages. Films are shown at 6:30 pm in the Carnegie Room (3rd Floor at Central Library).

You can keep track of upcoming New Release Tuesday films on The Studio's Facebook page (we'll also let you know here on the Genealogy Room News blog).
