This is a busy time of year for everyone, and here at the Library, we’re no exception. Here is a glimpse of what we’re up to this coming week. We hope you can join us – not only for some holiday fun, but also for some great opportunities – like supporting local writers or learning something new.
Our Giving Trees at Mesa County Libraries, a partnership with Grand Valley Catholic Outreach, are wrapping up this week. The program aims to collect gifts for needy Mesa County residents. Select a tag describing a gift request, provide library staff with your contact information, and return the gift unwrapped by Thursday, December 13th. We’ve received great support and only have a few tags left! Look for them at the Central Library or at our Fruita, Clifton or DeBeque branches.
There’s also several opportunities this week to visit our holiday puppet show – Santa’s New Helper. There are five performances at our Central library this week – click on the flier to view them all. Rudolph is sick and Santa needs to find a new helper to pull his sleigh – who will help Santa on Christmas Eve?
The newest electronics might also be on your mind this time of year. We’re hosting a new computer class – PC First Aid: Fix Common Computer Issues. Learn to repair your PC yourself! The class will cover 12 of the most common computer issues and how to fix them. Registration is required. This class is offered at our Central location on Monday, the 10th at 6:00 pm or at the Mesa Community Center on Thursday, the 13th at 2:00 pm. Follow the links to our events calendar to sign-up.
We’re also debuting another Tech service this week – stop by our very first Tech Table Tuesday on the 11th. Every Tuesday, library staff will be available at our Central location from 12-2pm to answer your Tech questions. We can help with your ereader, tablet, laptop or general techie question, as well as answer questions about the library’s website or resources.
Lastly, on Saturday, the 15th, stop by the Lincoln Park Barn between 2-4pm for our Regional Authors Meet & Greet. Over 25 authors from Grand Junction, the Front Range and throughout Colorado will be there. Don’t miss this chance to chat with local authors – their titles make great holiday gifts, too! This is offered in partnership with Parks and Recreation.
