Summer reading is a real joy: breezy beach reads and long road trips accompanied by lighthearted audio books. But that's basically over now, and it's at this time of year that I just decide to embrace the imminent shortening of sunlight hours, the browning and dying of all things green and alive, and the weather's frightful march toward winter.This is when I get my bummer reading in, and I fully enjoy it. Real downers -- books that make me uncomfortable, unsettled, unsure, and unhappy -- are some of my favorites.
Come by The Southeast Neighborhood Library every Tuesday in October for lessons in a variety of popular tech tools that are being used today.A librarian will be on hand to demonstrate the various functions of these tools and answer any questions you may have. The classes will be around an hour long and there will be a few laptops available for use. Feel free to bring your own laptop to the class.All classes will start at 2 p.m in the meeting room on the lower level of the library.

Oh la la! Paris, the city of lights. A creative hub for writers and artists alike.
