Can I Make A Photocopy At My Local Library?

Even in today’s electronic world, there are still times when I need to make some photocopies. There might be a document that I need to copy for my records, or I might want to have my own copy of a magazine article or passage from a book. Using a Xerox machine is the easiest way to do so.

Fortunately, I can still make photocopies at my local public library. Doing so is much cheaper in general than taking my material to a local copy shop. Each copy only costs 10 cents at the library, and they actually give you the first five copies for free.

It is pretty easy to make the copies that I need when I go to the library. The only problem sometimes is remembering to bring enough change. The machines only take coins, not bills, so I have to be sure that I bring plenty of dimes and nickels or else I am out of luck.

Making copies is a very fast and convenient way to record information that may not be available in digital form. This is yet another great service that is offered at a very low cost from my local public library.

Why Am I Not Getting My Library Notices By Email

I check out a lot of books from my local public library and always have. Over the years I have probably checked out thousands of books, magazines, CDs, and DVDs, and I always try to make sure that I get them back on time. I do not like having to pay overdue fines on the materials that I use.

However, I recently wondered why I was not getting my notices via email, as I thought that I should be. I discovered this when I returned a book and found out that it was a few days overdue. The library was supposed to email me when a book was due so that I could return it on time.

I went to the library and asked about the problem. It turned out that they did not have my current email address. I guess that I must have forgotten to change it when I switched to a different ISP. I felt kind of silly about this.

Now that they have my new address, I am getting all of my notices again in a timely fashion. Thanks to these messages, I never have to worry about having overdue materials again.

How Can I View An Electronic Book?

When the ebook craze first began, I was flummoxed. How do you read these things, anyway? Turns out there are many ways to read an electronic book. The most popular way is to buy an e-reader and either load or buy your books through that. Amazon Kindle, Nook, and Kobo are all very popular brands. However, you can always view them on your computer as well. It helps to have a PDF viewer on your computer, which should come standard these days anyway. Thanks to ebooks, I can now read so many of my favorite books with ease.

Where Do My Books And Other Items Get Returned?

When I need to return books or other items that I bought online, I try using the help desk of the service hosting the sales. If it’s a big name site, they generally won’t give me too much trouble and will cut their losses. If I work with people that are just sellers from their homes, it may be a whole other story with them. I’m just happy to work with returning things if they are broken, but if the shipping is far too much then I just chalk it up as a loss.

How To Find A Library Branch Location And Hours Of Operation

I have always been an avid supporter of my local library branch, but I have noticed that a lot of my friends and family don’t know where the local library is or its hours of operation. However in a few quick steps, you can obtain both bits of information.

First, perform a search on Google using your location and just the term ‘library’. This will bring up any major library branch in your area. The information displayed will include a map, phone number, hours of operation, and a website.

During holidays or inclement weather, I tend to give my library a call to check if they’re open and if so, for how long. Further information is always available on the website, so it helps to peruse it.

How I Try To Recommend Purchases

I was looking at how I could recommend purchases to other people and I got a feeling it would be hard to do. However, I started to pay attention to what my friends wanted and needed, and it was very easy for me to start telling them about things I read about or saw at the store.

Recommending something to people that I know isn’t good can sometimes happen. Just studying reviews and things of that nature help me to talk about what it does and what problems could arise. If I’ve used it and it worked good, I will always recommend that product.

Why We Need The Book of Mormon In Our Lives

The Book of Mormon is another testament to Jesus. When combined with the Bible, the two books provide a powerful level of testimony to the preaching of Jesus Christ. It is important to remember that He gave us both of these books.

The Book is also a blessing on this Earth and provides people with another way to become closer to God. It can change the life of people who read it and it can also change the life of the people that it is shared with. It is a blessing on this Earth.

Before 1996 season nobody figured a long term relationship between the Yankees and Joe Torre. Torre got his 1,000th win as Yankees manager, with Hideki Matsui hitting a three-run homer in an 8-5 victory over the Texas Rangers on Sunday that stretched New York’s winning streak to a season-high five games.

Torre has a 1,000-645 record with New York, before him we find Joe McCarthy (1,460), Casey Stengel (1,149) and Miller Huggins (1,067). Torre has the longest uninterrupted term among Yankees managers since Stengel from 1949-60. Yankees owner George Steinbrenner and all Yankee fans should be proud of him for the decisions he is making are the right moves and he is a true leader to he team.

Players credit Torre for his even-tempered disposition and ability to handle different personalities, besides he has done just about absolutely everything that needed to be done to get the organization back to where it should be.

Torre’s road to a thousand Yankees victories has been glorious at times, with six pennants and four World Series titles. Well 1,000 victories are a lot of wins, especially when you sign a two-year contract back in ’96 and think about what’s happened since then. The Yankee history book is a special place to be for Joe Torre and very well deserved one.

The Notebook

A Notebook PC, also known as a laptop, is excellent for carrying with you when travelling or allowing you to easily carry your work with you when on the move. Traditionally, though, the notebook PC has been more high-priced than desktop computers with decreased performance. However, advances in the technology inside your computer and wireless technology have dramatically increased. This increase in technology has seen more powerful machines emerge at reduced prices.

When you are shopping for a notebook PC you should think about the reasons you need to purchase one and exactly what you will use it for. In many cases, the most important thing will be a combination of performance, price and accessibility. If you are intending to use your notebook computer for work then the important issues will be the software that is already installed, the package that comes with the computer and the Internet access capabilities.

Wireless Internet has truly come a very long way and this advance is must have to the benefit of the user. You can take your laptop wherever you go and easily access the Internet. This means you can send and receive files with very little difficulty and conduct your work on the move.

Be warned that notebook computers do differ greatly in specification. Always look at the size and type of processor as well as the size of hard drive and RAM type and size before you make your final decision. Shopping online allows you the convenience of researching each one that you are wanting in, without feeling like you are being forced to make a swift decision. There are also some sites that give you the added convenience of comparing different models side by side. This is by far the best way to comparison shop for any type of product and it will make it much easier when shopping for a notebook computer.

That Coupon Book

You have probably seen coupon books sold for various large cities and may have wondered if they are worth the price. That of course depends on how much you use them. They usually have several thousands of dollars worth of discounts in the coupons inside, and prices range from around $25 to $45, but if you don’t use them, have they aren’t worth very much to you. Sometimes they are sold as fundraisers by different groups and you get the added benefit of helping out a worthy cause. Here are some tips to make sure your book is not wasted.

First, be realistic about how often you will be in the area. Entertainment publishes editions for 159 localities in the US and Canada. If the one nearest you is a couple of hours away, you may not use it very much and end up wasting your money. On the other hand, if you are planning a vacation to one of the destinations that has an Entertainment coupon book, you will probably be hitting a lot of restaurants, hotels, attractions, rental cars, etc. and these are exactly the type of items that these coupon books have the most savings for. In addition, if you are taking your trip in the summer or fall, wait to order your book until a few weeks before your trip, since prices on the books usually drop as the yr progresses because you will have a shorter window of time to use them.

If you are considering buying a book for your local area, look through it before you purchase it and ask yourself the same questions you would if you were looking through your Sunday circulars or packs of coupons you get in the mail for free. Are these places and products you use anyway, or ones you want to try? If so, the book is probably a good value. But if you would not have considered going to the attractions, restaurants, or other coupon items, it is not really a savings for you to pay for the book and then pay for half of an event you would not have paid anything for because you would not have gone if you did not have the coupon.

Consider sharing a book with a neighbor or with family and guests that come to town frequently. This way you can still benefit from the book but at a reduced cost and everyone gets things that they will use.

But if you find that your local library doesn’t offer this, there are other options; one would be the ever resourceful internet. The internet site, Jiggerbug. com offers free trials of their audio book rental service. They have a wide range of audio books, just look threw them and if you like something you can burn it onto CD for your personal use only, that means no selling it.

Or another approach would be the do-it yourself, record your own audio books. This is a good idea for parents with young children. If you have to go away for business, at least you’re child will not have to miss those bed time readings.

So go and try these suggestions, the faster you go the faster you’re curled up in bed listening to your prized book.

Children’s Book

In an editorial several years ago, I described a tree house in the backyard of a local restaurant. I wrote, “The entire structure has been pieced together from recycled lumber, much of which still bears the paint, logos or posters of the original walls from whence it came. The generous platform is ringed by a sturdy fence that includes branches of the tree itself, random two-by-fours, wooden signs, and even a pair of moose antlers. The ‘house’ is more of a lean-to, tall enough for kids (but not adults) to stand up inside, with a screened door and two screened windows positioned so occupants can easily spy on the diners below or out over the adjacent parking lot. A green padded bench that looks like it had once belonged in a diner adequately furnishes the space. Underneath the tree house hangs a rope swing, from which kids can fling themselves into a thick layer of hay on the grass. ”

Fast forward to this summer. The restaurant revamped their backyard, including the tree house. The railing now consists of uniform boards about three inches apart. The house is reached not by a ladder and trapdoor, but via a bona fide staircase. The screen door is gone, the windows are covered in glass, and several of the tree’s branches have been pruned back to discourage climbing. But the worst part, according to my 10-year-old, is that the rope swing has disappeared. Matthew declared the whole structure “boring. ” In today’s world, kids have far less freedom than in previous generations. Their lives are more controlled–sometimes because of parents’ fears of an increasingly dangerous society, but often because we’ve somehow come to believe that to grow into successful adults, children’s activities must be channeled, scheduled and programmed from infancy.

Danger comes in many forms, from a stranger encountered on the way to school (who may be a neighbor out walking his dog, but you never know), to free time not filled with “enriching” activities. But, in my opinion, kids need a little danger in their lives. They need to test their boundaries, to learn how to climb a ladder and squeeze through a trapdoor. They need to hurl themselves into a pile of hay and learn it’s best not to land on your face. If grown-ups clean up their world too much, kids will never learn how to push themselves. They’ll never have the satisfaction of trying things that are a little scary, a little off their parents’ radar, and accomplishing something that belongs just to them.

One of the few places kids can still push their limits is with books. It’s possible to step outside your safe life with a story, or try new ideas on for size. But many adults need to clean up their kids’ reading choices as well. I know parents who abhor Barbara Park’s perennially popular Junie B. Jones chapter books because the spirited Junie is not a good role model, or will not read Winnie the Pooh because Christopher Robin cannot spell very well. I also know a lot of authors who are afraid to write books that are slightly subversive because they worry editors will not publish them. But for all parent who insists on only “safe” reading for their child (and it’s all parent’s right to do so), there are at least two parents who believe it’s okay for kids to wade into the danger zone through fiction. I’m not advocating murder mysteries for preschoolers here, just books that might be considered slightly uncivilized, or more entertaining than educational. Let’s look at some popular examples:

When I first saw Walter, the Farting Dog by William Kozwinkle and Glenn Murray, illustrated by Audrey Colman (a picture book whose plot needs no explanation), I was worried that children’s publishing might be sinking a little too low. But as it started winning awards and spawning sequels, I changed my opinion. Let’s face it: farting makes kids laugh. And if your child finds this book hysterical, you should be glad. In order to get the joke, kids need to know that noisy bodily functions are considered impolite. Laughing about them is one of the perks of childhood. Don’t worry, they’ll outgrow it.

A picture book coming out this December that’s already creating a buzz is 17 Things I’m Not Allowed to Do Anymore by Jenny Offill, illustrated by Nancy Carpenter. The heroine utters such statements as “I had an idea to staple my brother’s hair to his pillow. I am not allowed to use the stapler anymore. ” She also glues her brother’s bunny slippers to the floor, and shows Joey Whipple her underpants. Both big No’s. This ingenious story should satisfy two camps of parents; those who need kids to see consequences for inappropriate behavior, and those who don’t mind letting their kids live vicariously through a curious, mischievous character. A pop-up book due out later this month from three publishing powerhouses–Maurice Sendak, Arthur Yorinks and Matthew Reinhart–lets young children face the monsters hiding in their closets and come out on top. In Mommy?, a young boy wanders into a haunted house looking for his mother and encounters creatures like a goblin, a mummy, and Frankenstein. Instead of running scared, the boy pulls pranks on each monster, deflating their power and showing how humor conquers fear all time.

Speaking of scary, if you have not read any of the enormously popular Series of Unfortunate Events middle grade novels by Lemony Snicket, do so. With titles like The Bad Beginning, The Miserable Mill, and The Penultimate Peril, and cautions from the author such as, “If you are wanting in stories with happy endings, you would be better off reading some other book,” these are clearly stories where adults dare not tread. But children brave enough to venture between the covers will find hilarious plots full of nail-biting twists. The intelligent Baudelaire orphans have unusual skills (Violet for inventing, Klaus for reading and researching, and baby Sunny for biting) that make them admirable heroes.

Lauren Myracle enters the private world of teen girl talk in her young adult novels TTYL and TTFN. The titles alone might raise some parents’ suspicions because unless they are well-versed at IM (instant messaging), they will not know what the abbreviations stand for. In fact, the entire novels consist of conversations between three high school girls written in emails, text-messaging and IM’s, using the standard computer shorthand that includes abbreviated spelling and quirky syntax. If you’re not an IMer yourself, you’ll find the books somewhat difficult to read. But you and I aren’t the target audience here. And though the format might keep adults from examining the books too closely, the plots are standard upper young adult fare–relationships, family trauma, peer pressure, even drugs and alcohol–handled in a believable manner that conveys growth of character by the end of each story.

As an author, if you’re inspired to delve into the slightly dangerous, dark or subversive corners of childhood with your books, feel free to do so. Don’t limit yourself to all that’s bright, safe and up to code. Allow kids places where they can wander away from their parents’ watchful eyes and have an adventure. If the adventure’s in a book, they’ll always come home safe and sound. And if you’re still not convinced, consider this: In the backyard of the restaurant, the tree house now sits empty. But the books I’ve described above are flying off the shelves.

Scrapbook

When choosing which photographs to use for your scrapbooking project, it is best to pick photos of good quality.

Consider choosing only photos that clearly illustrate the theme you desire for your album. Digital pictures, instant photos and even black and white photographs can be used. It is important to be careful that the chemicals in the photos do not interfere with the rest of your scrapbook.

Some chemicals used in photos like lignin and acid in photo paper can lessen the preservation time of your scrapbook album. The safest pictures to use are digital photos simply because they can be easily printed out directly on lignin-free and acid-free paper. Keep in mind though that the pictures you choose to mount will become a permanent feature of your scrapbook. That’s why it is best to use copies of your most cherished photos. Just scan each picture on a computer scanner and be sure to print each image on lignin-free and acid-free paper for the best results.

To make your photos especially interesting, try using a photo editing software program to alter the look of your photos. Make that color photo black and white or try sepia for that old-fashioned look.

Cutting and cropping your images adds interest to your scrapbook pages and sends a special message to the viewer to take a closer look.

Most in all, the way photographs are arranged and presented can enhance the overall look of your album and turn your project into a professional-looking memory album.
