  • dams Mystery Author, Jeanne M. Dams
    Ms. Dams will bring books to sell and sign following the program.

      I’ve read English mysteries since I was a teen-ager... [It] bred in me a love of England that led to my first mystery series. I knew it was unlikely I could ever afford to live in a lovely little seventeenth-century cottage somewhere in Kent or Sussex—but if I created a character who did just that, I could live her life vicariously, and instead of costing me a fortune, that life would actually make me some money. Such a deal!” - From Jeanne M. Dams official website

  • Apple iWorks is an office suite of apps created by Apple which has released a web version.
    These apps can be used on Macs or PCs. All you need is a supported browser (Safari) and
    an iTunes account.

    Day/Time: Thursdays @ 6:30

    Feb. 19 - *Pages: Similar to Microsoft Word. During the 2 hour class you will learn the
    basics of the program including inserting graphics, graphs/charts, and formatting.

    Mar. 19 - *Keynote: Similar to Microsoft’s Power Point. Keynote, however, boasts
    some of the most entertaining and powerful presentation tools and animations out there.

    Apr. 16 - *Numbers: Similar to MS Excel, but unlike Excel it is incredibly simple to link data
    to live graphs and turn a spreadsheet into a full blown presentation of data instead of just
    numbers on the page. You can embed video, audio and graphics with ease all while
    communicating “numbers” to your viewer.

    *Attendees to this series of classes must come prepared with an Apple login.
