Suffice it to say that Stan Lee was the Godfather of modern comic books. He had a hand in the creation or proliferation of almost every popular Marvel Comics series since the 1960s, and on into the blockbuster film successes of the 21st Century.  Lee's co-creation credits include the Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Thor, Iron Man, the X-Men, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, and Marvel's most successful character, Spider-Man, all of whom lived in a thoroughly shared universe. He also gathered several of their newly created characters together into the team title The Avengers and would revive characters from the 1940s such as the Sub-Mariner and Captain America. 

He has left an indelible impression on hardcore fans and popular culture. He will be missed, though his legend will clearly live on for decades to come. 'Nuff Said!

Veterans Day originated as “Armistice Day” on Nov. 11, 1919, the first anniversary of the end of World War I. Congress passed a resolution in 1926 for an annual observance, and Nov. 11 became a national holiday beginning in 1938. Unlike Memorial Day, Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans—living or dead—but especially gives thanks to living veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime. 

Celebrate Veterans Day and read one of the books linked below to celebrate and honor our veterans. 

-Information on Veterans Day was gathered at History.com

ML is today's most popular way to store and send information. In this course, you'll master the essentials of XML through easy-to-follow, real-world examples. Even if you've never tried computer programming, you'll discover how quickly you can learn to produce powerful "code."  And the biggest surprise is how much fun programming can be!

From the very first lesson, you'll dive in, creating your first XML document. You'll use one of the greatest bargains in computer programming—Microsoft's free yet powerful Visual Studio (VS) Express. Then you'll go on to learn the elements of programming: variables, loops, and branching. Using VS's full-featured design editor, you'll see how to build efficient, professional-looking user interfaces.

All Gale Courses are free with your Canton Public Library card, and the next set of classes will begin on Wednesday, November 14th.
