HML is launching a program to incorporate digital literacy into our services. The purpose of the Digital Literacy Initiative is to provide technology-based resources to Oneonta to better prepare our community for the technological world and to create a STEM-literate populace. Adding new technology to library services and programs will inspire our community to create, master new tools and gain a level of expertise that is important in an increasingly technological world. The aim of this new initiative supports the Huntington Memorial Library’s mission statement, “To provide a creative environment that supports life-long learning by making information freely available in order to improve knowledge and strengthen the community”.
The popular Writer’s Group will gather every Saturday at 1:30 beginning July 2. Jen, the Writer’s Group leader, has had 2 short stories published this year and she will keep you motivated if you choose to participate in the annual Camp National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo). You’ll find a supportive group of writers that will review your work and give constructive criticism. There will also be activities that will help you stretch as a writer. Register by calling the library at 432-1980. The first 15 registrants will receive a free summer themed journal.
