Date Change for the Computer Maintenance Class

There is a computer maintenance class that is scheduled to meet on Thursday, October 14 from 9:30am-11:30am. When I attempted to register for the class, it now indicates that the class will meet on Friday, October 22. Which is the correct date? I certainly hope that the original date of Thursday the 14th is correct since I intentionally rearranged my work schedule in order to take this class.

Class cancellatins

I am enrolled in MS Word I on 10/5 and MS Word II on 10/12. I have a schedule conflict for both of these courses and won't be able to attend. Please remove me from both of these courses so someone else can use the spot. Thank you.

Smoking outside the doors

Can you please re-evaluate your policy regarding smoking in the front of the library? Many times I have to walk through a cloud of smoke to return my books or walk into the library. Can you think about creating a smoking area at the back entrance to the library? I really would appreciate someone taking the time to think about this. It is not healthy to be walking through second hand smoke.

Google Class Held on Sept. 14th

Brad, I could not find your notes on This URL was not recognized. Plus you said you would expand the notes. If so, where will they be posted? Thanks.

Monday night donation

Hi Bookstore, On the 13th, around 8pm, I dropped off 4 bags (Holiday Market paper bag) of books in the back for the bookstore. I guess one of these books my son was not ready to part with - a large white cover hard bound book called "My First Dictionary". Do you know if this would still be on the premises? Could I buy it back?

Storytime for 2 yr olds

Just want to put in a request again that the 2yr old Storytime start a little earlier for the next session this winter. Ending at 10:30 makes it impossible for those of us that have to pick up older siblings from school. After I made this request last season I was told to try Family Storytime. We did and will not be doing that again. Besides my disappointment of having a different leader every week, trying to get a toddler to sit still when there's a cart full of toys in the room for the next event was no fun. Between the toys, piano, coat rack and windows that large room up front has too many distractions. I took my older son to the library all the time when he was younger but now there are so few time slots available I haven't been able to take my little one to anything! A 9 or 9:30 two yr old class would be awesome! Thank you for your consideration.

Book & Author Luncheon

The phone number (734-397-0999 x1197) listed at the Book and Author luncheon site at references the luncheon in May. Also I wanted to ask if sending in my request form prior to September 1 would be OK with the understanding it will not be processed prior to that date. If there is a better way to contact the luncheon organization either by phone or email to ask a question, please advise. Thanks.

CD Suggetions

I'd like to suggest the following cds: Euge Groove - Sunday Morning Jesse J - True Love Both are smooth jazz cds.

Marko Human Body DVD

Hi, this DVD for children titled Marko Human Body came out in 2009. You have the Marko DVD collection except for this one. It is rated very highly. Can you please purchase this for the library?
