Join us at Rock Creek Public library for a special after-hours program on April 26th from 7 to 8:30 pm and learn all you ever wanted to know about the best way to drink and enjoy wine. Our guide for the night will be John Pallo, who is a 35-year veteran of the wine and spirits business, and has studied the beverages, both foreign and domestic.
During this session, patrons will learn about all things wine, including such things as how wine is made, the differences between red and white vintages, and even the proper way to taste a wine. If you have shied away from wine in the past, follow John’s advice: “Wine is not supposed to scare people, wine is meant to be enjoyed.”
Seating is limited for this adult only program. Only those 21 and over will be able to register. Attendees are asked to bring 2 clear wine glasses for the tasting portion of the class. For more information, or to sign up, stop in at the library or give us a call at 440-563-3340
We now have verizon mobile hotspots available for our patrons to check out. They are great when temporary internet is needed. These are available for 14 days at a time, however they cannot be renewed and a 24 hour wait between checkouts is required. These mobile hotspots are available only to patrons with a Rock Creek card in good standing.
For more information, stop in or give us a call here at the library.
We are fortunate to have Melissa Johnson back with us for a short while. She’ll be with us while she’s completing her practicum for her Applied Communications Bachelor’s degree. A practicum is very similar to an internship.
Melissa normally can be found at Grand Valley public library in Orwell, where she serves as the Teen and Young Adult services librarian, however, her practicum won’t allow her to complete her hours where she works. She will be with us at varied hours for a total of 150 hours. Melissa can help patrons with technology issues, as well as things like resumes and Microsoft office applications. It is advisable to set up an appointment with her because her hours are extremely varied, mostly on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Call the library for more info or to inquire about Melissa’s availability. Don’t forget, Christy, our regular staff member, can also help you with all your technology and computer related issues.
