Support local authors @your Library

Saturday, Dec 10, 10 am til 2pm, Ruidoso Public Library will host 10 local authors with their latest books.  These are on sale, available for autographs, and a Friend of the Library will provide gift-wrapping, too!  Each author has agreed to make a donation to the Friends for each book sold.  Try out the shop-local philosophy this year.

This is a big week, both in history and at the library.  Wednesday, Dec 7, is the 70th anniversary of Pearl Harbor.  People may choose to observe a moment of silence in memoriam.

Later on Wednesday, Dec 7, at 4pm, I, Jennifer, will sit down with up to 6 people to explore personal laptops.  Please call (575 258-3704) to register for the class.  There are a few spaces left!

Thursday, join us for "De-stress for the Holidays" also at 4pm.  Learn how to cope with family, situations, and learn how to enjoy yourself.

Finally, Saturday is also Melvil Dewey's 160th birthday.  This Dewey created one of the earliest systems for organizing information.  Several systems have been adopted around the world over the past century, but many public libraries, such as Ruidoso's, still use the Dewey Decimal System for our non-fiction books.
