Digital Media Event
Do you have precious family movies, photos, and slides on outdated media? On Saturday, September 24, from 12 to 2 p.m., Digital Memory Media (DMM) will be at the Library once again to receive personal collections of materials that you would like to have transferred onto digital media. ...
DMM advisors will be on hand to counsel you on the best way to digitally preserve your collections. Materials can be brought to the library on the day of the session or prior to it if that is more convenient. A price list for conversion of the various type of media to digital format is available at the library or here.
Twenty percent of all proceeds from the event will be credited to the library.

Rosetta Stone for Public Libraries

On the next page enter your email address and a password that contains at least 6 letters plus 1 number, and then choose the language you want to learn. On the new page click on "Launch Rosetta Stone Language Lessons." Now choose the same language as you did earlier and the level you want to start with, and click Continue. Note that Rosetta Stone requires Adobe Flash Player to run. If you don't have it on your computer, you can download it for free at adobe.com. It also requires a headset with a microphone, since most of the tutorials use voice recognition.

This Month's Art Display
During September the art of Susan Scarince Jones is on display at the library. Susan, a long-time resident of Washington Township, is a mixed media artist, and has always worked in fine arts or advertising art. Photographing, writing and self-publishing the Skippy Chipmunk books have opened a new creative direction for me. It's been hard work and taught me to be patient, but it's been so much fun and very rewarding!
