Since you can’t get rid of the apps that came with your tablet– the ones Apple or Google stuck there, like Mail, Calendar and Photos– you might as well make the best of it.  We’ll let you in on the secrets of those built-in apps and even show you how you can get around their limitations.  First hour:  iPad and iPhone.  Second hour:  Android tablets and phones.  Join Al Fasoldt and his wife, Nancy, at this two hour workshop.  Al is the technology writer for The Post-Standard and Nancy teaches readers how to enjoy the ePost-Standard.

Registration is required, space is limited.

Two classes available:

Tuesday, October 14th 11am-1pm NOPL at Brewerton 

Wednesday, October 29th 2-4pm at NOPL at Cicero

The Military History Lecture Series is organized by the Society for the Preservation of Military History(SPMH). Lectures occur monthly during the academic year at the North Syracuse Library, and are open to all.

The SPMH’s mission statement

Recognizing and understanding the importance of preserving and studying military history, our society dedicates itself to the gathering and dissemination of world military history. This applies especially to the archiving and collecting of artifacts, documents, and related materials that pertain to the unique military heritage of the United States and its veterans who have maintained our freedoms and way of life. The society will serve to educate our community about military history, the role of the Armed Forces, and through learning, promote their positive and vital role in our society.

Registration not required, but signing up will trigger an email reminder to be sent to you the day before the event. Click the title of the series to register.

Make Your Own: Flower Pots at the LibraryFarm

Saturday October 11, 2014
10:00 AM to 11:30 AM

Join us at Cicero Public Library as we create faux-stone (hypertufa) to pack around or in to molds for our gardens, here and at home. Hypertufa is a cement-based mixture that turns out much lighter than concrete, making it perfect for DIY home projects. Bring your own molds or use what the LibraryFarm scrounges up, and create with us! Please bring enough plastic to take home your creation to cure, and your own gloves to keep your hands cleaner. Registration Required.
