We are pleased to be able to bring another new community resource to the McIntosh library during the month of July. Beginning on Monday, July 2, you will be able to convert slides and 35mm film negatives to digital using a media conversion kit. The kit will be available to use daily inside the library at no charge through July 31. Those using the kit will need to provide their own flash drive and must abide by all copyright restrictions. To reserve a date and time to use a kit, log onto the library website at www.mcintoshmemoriallibrary.org and select the “reserve a space” option to get started. The kits are being made possible in part by the Winding Rivers Library System and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Coming up next week we are looking forward to our second author visit during the month of June. Dr. Richard Masella will be here Saturday, June 23, at 1 p.m. in the conference room for a program titled, “Korean War and Today’s North Korea Crisis.” Dr. Masella will talk about his book, “Korean War Leadership and Leftist Revolution—America Betrayed.” Dr. Masella will present unknown facts about World War II, The Korean War, and the development of the People’s Republics in China and North Korea. Never before seen maps of Europe and Asia will be shared during the hour-long program. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
Last week we kicked off a new addition to our Tuesday evening story time by adding in a yoga component. Join us every Tuesday night from 6:30-7 for stories and now some simple yoga moves with Miss Mary. Tuesday evening yoga story time is for children 3-5 years of age along with an adult. Remember, we offer story time three times per week year-round. Besides our Tuesday evening program, you can join us on Tuesday mornings from 10:30-11. Our Tuesday morning program is for children 1-3 years of age along with an adult. We also offer story time on Wednesday mornings from 11-11:30 for children 3-5 years of age along with an adult. At every program we read stories, do activities and sing songs.
