The Cathlamet library is wired. You can now bring in your laptop and get a WiFi connection. The library also has desktop computers for customers. A few common uses of library computers include email, word processing applications such as resumes and letters, Internet searching for a wide range of things from housing to health topics and recipes, “googling” in general, viewing social networking sites such as MySpace or Facebook, and games, as well as viewing The Eagle on-line. Did you know that you can access the Auto Repair Reference Center at the library? Come in and ask for a demonstration. This database contains information on most manufacturers of domestic and imported vehicles, including approximately 25,000 vehicles from 1945 to present. You can view factory drawings, service bulletins, specifications, recalls, wiring diagrams, a Labor Time Guide & Estimator and more. You can also access the Kelly Blue Book for new and used car information at the library. A few of the newest 2008 fiction titles added to the library collection are: Odd Hours by Dean Koontz, Stranger in Paradise by Robert B. Parker, Bleeding Kansas by Sara Peretsky and Light of the Moon by Luanne Rice. New non-fiction selections include: A Long way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier by Ishmael Beah, Boat Building for Beginners (and Beyond) by Jim Michalak, Parent as Coach: Helping Your Teen Build a Life of Confidence, Courage & Compassion by Diana Haskins and Audition: A Memoir by Barbara Walters. The library’s 2008 Summer Reading Program “Catch the Reading Bug” will start July 9 and end August 13. Studies show that an average student who doesn’t read or engage in other summer learning opportunities can lose as much as two and a half months of what they learned during the school year. Summer Reading Program details will be in The Eagle later this month.
