Tech Training - October 2014

The Library provides free tech training at a variety of times. Training ranges from beginner to advanced courses. Sessions last approximately 60 - 90 minutes, and are limited to four participants.

During October 2014, we are offering training on these topics: Basic Computers, Intro to Tablets, Intro to Google, Excel 2007, Word 2007, Desktop Publishing 101, and Pinterest 101. We also offer Prerequisite Building, which helps build your keyboard, mouse and basic computer skills so that you can sign-up for our group courses. New this month is our Spanish Basics class, which is one-on-one technology training for Spanish speakers. View the complete October 2014 schedule.

Ready to sign up or have questions? Contact the Information Desk at 847-455-6016, ext 2 or email info@fppld.org about availability. Have a suggestion for a new class? Let us know.

Good Books to Read - October 2014

Every day, librarians here at the Franklin Park Library and nationwide evaluate book reviews and select forthcoming titles for our collections. Our collective expertise is harnessed into LibraryReads, a monthly list of the top ten books that librarians across the country love.

View the October 2014 LibraryReads List, and then explore previous lists for past selections.

Search our online catalog for these titles, and don't be afraid to place a hold on a item! Librarians at the Info Desk and the Kids Crossing Desk are more than willing to help you learn how to locate items, place holds, and offer suggestions to match your reading tastes and interests.
