Evening Book Group – March 12

Join us on Monday, March 12 at 7 PM in the library’s Meeting Room as we discuss Following Atticus by Tom Ryan. Copies of the book are available behind the Main Desk.

After a close friend died of cancer, middle-aged, overweight, acrophobic newspaperman Tom Ryan decided to pay tribute to her in a most unorthodox manner. Ryan and his friend, miniature schnauzer Atticus M. Finch, would attempt to climb all forty-eight of New Hampshire’s four-thousand-foot peaks twice in one winter while raising money for charity. It was an adventure of a lifetime, leading them across hundreds of miles and deep into an enchanting but dangerous winter wonderland. At the heart of the amazing journey was the extraordinary relationship they shared, one that blurred the line between man and dog.

New members are always welcome! For more information about the Evening Book Group, click here.

Social Media for Small Businesses – Mon., Feb. 26 at 6:30 PM

Small business owners wear all (or most) of the hats when it comes to their business. You know you need to do something with social media, but where do you begin? How do you keep it from becoming a time-sink? In this presentation, we’ll look at how to incorporate social media practices in your small business without losing your mind. We’ll cover such topics as: supporting your business goals with social media; best practices for engaging with your customers; and social media tools (including social media management and scheduling).

You will come away with ideas for how to make social media work for you, your business, and your time. Bring an open mind and a sense of humor. No social media experience required. This presentation is also appropriate for those involved in small non-profit organizations, as well, such as church groups.

Amy Smith is a professional writer and social media consultant, and the proprietor of The Social Media Smith (www.thesocialmediasmith.com). She enjoys helping small business owners become comfortable and proficient on social media and engage with their customers.
