Algansee Internet


P1010089At long last Algansee township and the Algansee Branch Library have high-speed Internet access! Algansee Township Supervisor, Erica Ewers, deserves a huge "Thank You!" for making this happen. Her work to bring wireless Internet service from DMCI Broadband on a tower provided by the township will benefit the entire community.

This new high-speed access will benefit our patrons, too. Computer time will be more productive, and we will be able to add two new computers starting next week. Also, we now have free wireless access for our patrons. Bring your laptop, PDA, or whatever, and use the library's Internet service while we're open. There are tables inside, or you can sit on the porch and enjoy the fresh air.

Here are the details on our wireless service.

Celebrate Gardening


Join us at the Coldwater Library at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 6th for "How Does Your (Vegetable) Garden Grow?"

In honor of last month's two eco-holidays, Earth Day and Arbor Day, Master Gardener Carole Bolton will share tips and tricks for growing herbs and vegetables in containers, as well as in a regular garden. All are welcome!

For more information, call the Reference Desk at 278-2341, ext. 17.

Batter Up!


Yesterday was Opening Day at Tigers Stadium (they lost to Kansas City, but not without a fight!), so this information from the Library of Congress is especially timely. From the official press release:

One Book, One County


Please join us this Saturday, March 29, for the final discussion in our "One Book, One County" event. Former BDLS librarian Linda Birkenbuel will lead the discussion of Mitch Albom's novel, For One More Day, which begins at 11:00 in the Coldwater Library's Meeting Room.
