Saturday, July 8 at 12:30 p.m. join Leading Edge Technologies for a “Cyber Safety” program in the library meeting room. Many of us are spending many hours “connected” online. Learn how you can keep your online accounts, identity, and children safe! This program is open to teens and adults. Parents and their teen children are encouraged to attend!

Coming up on Thursday, July 20 at 5 p.m., the Carnegie Book Club will meet to discuss “A Study in Scarlet” by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. This 1886 novel marks the first appearance of the famed Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson. Pick up your copy today and join fellow readers for discussion!

History buffs and citizen researchers: Join Carnegie Public Library in the “History Unfolded Project” from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum. This project asks folks throughout the United States what communities like ours may have learned about the Holocaust as it was happening. We are collaborating by using the Record-Herald microfilm collection to search articles related to the 31 holocaust-era events that are the focus of “History Unfolded Project.” Stop in and library staff will show you how you can participate by finding and uploading articles to this important initiative. Be part of history, today! Do you use Newspapers.com from home? Set up an account and join our group, Carnegie Public Library 43160, to submit articles. Check it out online at: newspapers.ushmm.org

In Washington Court House: Join us for summer storytime! This week, children and babies ages 0-5 are invited to a special “Picnic in the Park” storytime. Meet at Chrisman Park at 10:30 a.m.. Families are encouraged to bring a picnic lunch! Listen to stories, play games, and sing songs in the park! The Carnegie Youth Garden Club meets at the library in Washington Court House on Fridays at 10:30 a.m. all summer long to tend the garden. Drop-in and get your hands dirty. There is something to see, learn, and do each week. Open to all students in grades 1-8.
