Wright Memorial Public Library is pleased to present poet and Oakwood resident Betsy Hughes, reading from her new collection of sonnets, Breaking Weather. Winner of the National Federation of State Poetry Societies 2013 Stevens Poetry Manuscript Competition, Hughes’ poems contemplate the seasons, emotion, art and death. The program will take place in the Library meeting room, Saturday November 8th at 2:00p.m. Books will be available for purchase with a signing to follow.
Join Oakwood Historical Society member, Tom Morrow, as he discusses the various forms of public transportation available to residents of Oakwood from 1871 to today, including horsecars, streetcars, steam trains, interurbans, trolley buses and diesel buses.
The Wright Library Device Users' Group will meet each month on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays at 1:30 p.m. in the Library Meeting Room. Users of any electronic media device are welcome, whether you have a tablet (e.g. iPad, Nexus), an ereader (e.g. Kindle, Nook), mp3 player (e.g. iPod, Sansa Clip), or even a smartphone (so many). Bring your device and any passwords you will need to access content sources (i.e. Kindle users - Amazon account information). On the theory that two or more brains are better than one and that if you are experiencing a problem, someone else is too, Wright Library offers a forum for users to gather and exchange information, helping each other find solutions. This group is for novices, as well as for those with more experience, perhaps with a specific problem to solve. In addition, a librarian experienced with numerous devices will be present to offer assistance and provide access to users' guides and other helpful resources. If you are unable to make the Device Users' Group meeting times, please contact Brian in the AV Department to schedule a more convenient time for one-on-one instruction. Call (294-7171) or email.
