Upcoming events at Sayre Public Library this week:
• Tuesday, Sept. 10 from 5:30-7 p.m., Sayre Public Library will host a program on Investigations with Darlene Adams. Darlene is a highly skilled Internet researcher and the owner of E-infoseek.com. A specialist in online investigations, her company supports both the legal and private investigative communities. Types of cases that she has worked on include fraud investigation, embezzlement, missing persons, and murders, as well as those who have been wrongfully accused of crimes. In addition to holding a M.B.A. from Northeastern University, she also received a Certificate in Professional Investigation from Boston University. This program is an opportunity for the public to learn some search techniques and to ask questions about their own searches.
• Wednesday, Sept. 11 at 10:30 a.m., we will hold our Children’s Story Hour at 10:30 a.m. This week’s theme will be “Western Day with Mellie the Dog.” Our friend Mellie, and her owner Karen Stroud, will be on hand to have Western fun with stories and crafts about horses, cows, cacti, and other elements of the Wild West. Attendees are invited to wear their cowboy hats, boots, and bandannas!
• Thursday, Sept. 12 at 10:30 a.m., we will have One-on-One Technology Time with Ross. Stumped by a new computer or device or wondering how to access all of its many features? Bring it into the library and ask away! If you do not have your own computer or device, library computers are always available to expand your knowledge of current technology.
• Thursday, Sept. 12 at 6 p.m., the Valley Study Group will meet to discuss current topics. New members are always welcome!
