This fall, the Haverford Township Free Library is proud to announce the start of our fall computer classes and seminars. We will be working to provide programming for all levels of computer users. We have 2 new regular programs, The Computer Tutor and Computer How-To, and our regular computer classes in Microsoft Office Suite 2007, Introduction to the Internet, and Introduction to Yahoo Email, as well as our continual Book A Librarian service.
We invite the community to come and reflect on the 10 year anniversary of the events of 9/11/01 this September. The interactive display, Ten Years Later - Reflections on 9/11 is housed in the lobby of the library and invites people to share their reflections, memories and perspective on the tragic events that occurred in New York, Washington DC, and Southwestern Pennsylvania 10 years ago this month.
Ten Years Later – Reflections of 9/11 will be available for viewing and participation during regular library hours for the whole month of September.
