January 2023 Newsletter

FREE STREAMING SERVICE Movies abound on a new service the Library is now providing for patrons—Kanopy. To start a free account, visit kanopy.com; you’ll need to type in your library card number and then fill out your name/email and create a password. After you make the account, you can access the various films, shows, documentaries, and more. Each month you are allowed up to 8 checkouts (“credits”), and once you hit “play”, you have 2-3 days to watch that film as often as you like. For Kanopy Kids and The Great Courses, there are unlimited plays. You can search the selections by genre or categories such as “popular this month”, “family movies”, and many others. Start browsing and adding to your watchlist— there is definitely something for everyone to enjoy. ALZHEIMER’S PROGRAM The Alzheimer’s Association will be presenting an educational program on this progressive, and heartbreaking, disease Monday, January 23 from 3-4 PM. Learn about the difference between Alzheimer’s and dementia, its impact, and the stages and risk factors. Current research and treatments will also be discussed, and resources from the Alzheimer’s Association will be shared. You can register for this program by calling 800-272-3900. And if you would like to know about more educational programs on this topic both online and nearby, you can visit alz.org/CRF. NORTHSTAR DIGITAL LITERACY Just a reminder that if you or someone you know needs to learn more about computers in general, or maybe something more specific, such as Microsoft programs, email, etc., we can get you started with this online teaching program. Northstar Digital Literacy allows one to start with the very basics of computers, such as identifying its parts. You can move at your own pace through the courses, so you can make sure you understand the information. Also, the courses do not have to be continued at the library, but can even be done from home if you prefer. Ask a staff member in the Reference Department if you would like to start this useful program.
