Facebook Demo at Friends Potluck Tuesday May 10 at 6 p.m.
Posted May 7, 2011on:
Don’t be left out. That may be the way you feel because your kids and grandkids are on Facebook and Twitter and you barely know what it is. The next meeting of Friends of Murphy Library could be your ticket back in. Nicky Grant of Coconutz computer store will present and demo “Social networking for the rest of us” at the Friends’ Tuesday, May 10 potluck at 6 p.m. in the library meeting room.
Although he had worked in the computer industry, Friends’ board member Bob MacLean was not part of social networking and feared he was being “left behind in the dust.” That’s when he asked Grant to give the Friends “a glimpse of what it all means.” Grant owns Coconutz on Valley River Avenue along with her husband Iain. She has explained e-readers to the Friends and currently offers free computer courses in their store. She notes social networking is “changing communication all over the world” and she will show you how it’s done.
This is a live demonstration not to miss. Friends’ members and prospective members are invited to bring their favorite potluck dish for the 6 p.m. dinner meeting. Membership is only $10 per year and now is the perfect time to join. Call the library at 837-2417 for details.
