Have questions about using your Android tablet or phone? Join us for the Andoid Hour, a user group at Seekonk Library Space is limited; registration with a SAILS library card is required.

The goal of the Android Hour is to help each other learn to use this new technology. There is no set agenda; Participants will be bring their devices to share questions and answers, favorite tips and tools. This session will be held in the Innovation Center at Seekonk Library and moderated by Senior Adult Services Librarian Michelle Gario. Michelle says, Android devices are just different enough from iPads and iPhones to make it confusing to talk to people who own those devices. Were all learning one day at a time and the little we think we know can be a huge benefit to the person sitting right beside us. Additional sessions may be offered based on community interest.

Book Group: Can't Make This Stuff Up...

Join us for a lively discussion of the next book in our narrative non-fiction book group: The Mother Tongue by Bill Bryson.

Bryson displays an encyclopedic knowledge of his topic, and this inevitably encourages a light tone; the more you know about a subject, the more absurd it becomes. No jokes are necessary, the facts do well enough by themselves, and Bryson supplies tens per page. As well as tossing off gems of fractured English (from a Japanese eraser: This product will self-destruct in Mother Earth.), Bryson frequently takes time to compare the idiosyncratic tongue with other languages. Not only does this give a laugh (one word: Welsh), and always shed considerable light, it also makes the reader feel fortunate to speak English. -Amazon.com
