Have you gotten a new electronic “toy”? A new computer, laptop, e-Reader or i-Pad? Do you need help learning the basics? Are you new to the internet? Want to learn how to surf the web, set up an email account, or just want to learn how to put together a resume, cover letter or flyer on the computer? Then call to reserve a spot at the Wauseon Public Library’s free, one-on-one computer classes on April 29 from 10:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m.

“These classes offer a wonderful opportunity to learn more about how to use the computer,” shares Library Director Amy Murphy. “We will have staff sit down with you one-on-one and help you learn what you want to learn about the computer, software programs or the internet.”

The lessons are free, but space is limited. Since they are one-on-one classes, please register today for the one-hour segments.

Both the Science Fiction & Fantasy and the Mystery Book Discussion Groups will also meet at the end of April at the Wauseon Public Library. The Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Club will meet on April 20 at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s second floor board room while the Mystery Book Discussion Group will meet on April 28 at 6:30 p.m. in the library’s main floor Reading Room. Both book discussion groups are free and open to everyone.

The Science Fiction & Fantasy Book Discussion Group will be discussing “Marked” by Sarah Fine. The discussion will be facilitated by Library Director Amy Murphy.

According to the book’s jacket, “In a broken landscape carved by environmental collapse, Boston paramedic Cacia Ferry risks life and limb on the front lines of a fragile and dangerous city. What most don’t know—including her sexy new partner, Eli Margolis—is that while Cacy works to save lives, she has another job ferrying the dead to the Afterlife. Once humans are “Marked” by Fate, the powerful Ferrys are called to escort the vulnerable souls to either eternal bliss or unending fire and pain. Unaware of Cacy’s other life, Eli finds himself as mesmerized by his fierce and beautiful partner as he is mistrustful of the influential Ferry clan led by the Charon—who happens to be Cacy’s father. Cacy, in turn, can no longer deny her intense attraction to the mysterious ex-Ranger with a haunted past. But just as their relationship heats up, an apparent hit takes the Charon before his time. Shaken to the core, Cacy pursues the rogue element who has seized the reins of Fate, only to discover that Eli has a devastating secret of his own. Not knowing whom to trust, what will Cacy have to sacrifice to protect Eli—and to make sure humanity’s future is secure?”

The Mystery Book Discussion Group will hold its next meeting on Tuesday, April 28 at 6:30 p.m. in the main floor Reading Room. The group will be discussing “The Skeleton Man” by Tony Hillerman.

According to the book’s jacket, “In 1956, an airplane crash left the remains of 172 passengers scattered among the majestic cliffs of the Grand Canyon—including an arm attached to a briefcase containing a fortune in gems. Half a century later, one of the missing diamonds has reappeared . . . and the wolves are on the scent. Former Navajo Tribal Police Lieutenant Joe Leaphorn is coming out of retirement to help exonerate a slow, simple kid accused of robbing a trading post. Billy Tuve claims he received the diamond he tried to pawn from a mysterious old man in the canyon, and his story has attracted the dangerous attention of strangers to the Navajo lands—one more interested in a severed limb than in the fortune it was handcuffed to; another willing to murder to keep lost secrets hidden. But nature herself may prove the deadliest adversary, as Leaphorn and Sergeant Jim Chee follow a puzzle—and a killer—down into the dark realm of Skeleton Man.”

The library has ordered copies of the book discussion books, so each group member may have one. Stop by the library, and pick up your copy today.
