Have you heard? The Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library’s recording studio is moving.
Based on customer feedback from our recording studio users, the library’s previous recording studio space was too big and the sound was difficult to contain. Having taken these comments into consideration, they have moved the recording studio into a newer, brighter and smaller recording space. If you’re interested in booking the recording studio, or have any questions, contact Jeff Bennett at [email protected] or call 905-642-7323, ext. 5234.
As we move into the cooler fall weather, it is a wonderful opportunity to learn something new. The Library is offering two seniors’ technology programs that will be offered virtually for those who are interested. These programs are made possible through the Government of Canada’s New Horizons for Senior’s Program.
The first program is the New Horizons iPad Program, which teaches participants the basics of using an iPad. iPads are provided to participants for use during the eight-week program. The next session will be in two parts. Part one begins Wednesday, November 18th and runs until Wednesday, December 16th, 2020. Part two begins on January 6th and runs until January 27th, 2021. All iPad program classes will be hosted virtually via Zoom from 4-5:30 p.m. Interested participants can contact Jeff Bennett at [email protected] or call 905-642-7323, ext. 5234.
The second program is our New Horizons Grad School Program which instructs participants on how use a Google Chromebook. Google Chromebooks are provided to participants for use during the eight-week program. The next session begins on Tuesday, October 20th and runs until Tuesday, December 8th. All grad school program classes will be hosted virtually via Zoom. Interested participants can contact Jeff Bennett at [email protected] or call 905-642-7323, ext. 5234.
Finally, another opportunity for children aged 10-12 to learn something new is via our Home Alone course, which will be held on Saturday, November 28th from 1-3 p.m. This course is $20 per child and provides them with the necessary skills and knowledge to be safe and responsible at home alone for short periods of time. Participants will learn about hazards in the home, what to do in an emergency, safety rules and more. This course will be conducted virtually via Zoom. Participants can register via WSPlayOnline.
See you soon at your Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library.
