Tech Club

One of the most sophisticated features of our tablets and smart phones is the camera that’s included, but often we’re a little intimidated by the complexity and don’t fully realize the potential of this cool tool right in our pocket. Join us at Forsyth Public Library for Tech Club on May 8 at 10 a.m. as Val Bock reviews basic digital photography and talks about some add-on tools that can help us fully enjoy this entertaining hobby.

Summer Reading Program

Take a trip to the library this summer with Reading Takes You Everywhere! Registration begins Tuesday, May 29. Be sure to stop by on Saturday, June 2 for extra fun, including the Storywalk™ Adventure. The park program will be here that day to sign up children for its events, and the library will also highlight ways you can use the library even while you travel.
