The Library is offering a free program called “1,000 Books Before Kindergarten” to encourage parents to read a thousand books to their newborn, infant, or toddler before they start kindergarten. Book logs and electronic apps are available to help parents keep track. This self-paced program is free and is guided by the 1,000 Books Foundation. Visit the Library for more details.
The Hollidaysburg Area Public Library would like to announce that we now have photo editing software on our public computers!
Our public computers now offer two choices of photo editing software for our patrons to use. The first is Gimp, which has been installed directly onto the computers. This program is more involved and not necessarily for first time users, but if you’d like to teach yourself we have also installed a link to the Gimp tutorials. Give it a try!
The second program is Pixlr, which is an online photo editor. This one is a little simpler, and easier to learn and use. The link to Pixlr has also been installed on the public computers’ desktops.
Both programs are free to use and both offer great photo editing tools. Enjoy!
