We will explore through the Wiki section, and some examples will be shown of what sort of resources are provided through the Wiki. An email is required at registration so you can be sent the zoom meeting link a day or two before the class.

Touch A Truck Fundraiser at Glen Park

Come touch a variety of trucks, motorcycles, and equipment while supporting the Library!  Everyone will have a chance to see, touch, blow horns, and learn about dozens of cool vehicles.  For those who don't like the noise, there will be a quiet hour from 1 to 2 PM when no horns or sirens will sound.  Food will be available for purchase from the Lions' Club.  

This event is a fundraiser for the Library.  Admission is $3 per person for the day.
