Are you new to computers and have lots of questions still left unanswered? Join us at the Lillie M. Evans Library on Mondays during June for individual assistance. From 10-noon we will be offering a series of open lab times where anyone can drop in to ask questions or get lessons on computers or technology. Open labs are on Mondays from 10-noon in the month of June (June 4, 11, 18, 25). Appointments are not necessary; just stop in anytime between 10am-12pm on Mondays. Laptops will be set-up in the meeting room or bring your own device—we’d love to see you there!
Join us May 29th – July 27th and see how far Princeville can walk! Register free at the LME Library or online through the library’s website. You record your own steps and mileage and then report them to us. Walk, jog, run, bike and get moving; it all counts! Check out Purdue University’s site at http://www.purdue.edu/walktothemoon/activities.html to convert other activities into steps. You can join us anytime starting May 29th. Check in at the library at your convenience to have your mileage added to the total throughout the program.
Princeville was once served by 2 railroad lines—the Rock Island and the Santa Fe. Before the 1950s, railroads provided transportation of people and goods throughout the US and linked small towns like Princeville to the rest of the country. Please join us at the Lillie M. Evans Library on June 6th at 6pm for a railroad program by Jim David. Mr. David author of the book, The Rock Island Trail: Echoes From the Past, will take us on a journey to an era when railroads provided fast, reliable transportation and describe how an abandoned railway line became the Rock Island Trail. Those interested should reserve a seat by calling the library at 309-385-4540 or by registering online through the library’s website.
Auten Peonies Wednesday, June 13, 2012, 6-7pm
Are you interested in Auten peonies? Princeville was once known as the “Peony Capital of the World” due to the industrious Edward Auten, Jr. From 1925 until his retirement in 1963, Mr. Auten hybridized over 300 varieties of peonies. Join us at the Lillie M. Evan Library on June 13 at 6pm. Kathy German will be presenting a program on the Auten peonies and the legacy of Edward Auten, Jr. Those interested should reserve a seat by calling the library at 309-385-4540 or by registering online through the library’s website.
