Guilderland Library Notes for Thursday, April 17, 2014

If you’ve been meaning to leam the basics of cardiopul monary resuscitation, or CPR, then come to the Guilderland Public Library on Thursday, April 17, at 6 p.m. The trained emergency responders of Guilderland`s Westem Tumpike Rescue Squad will be here to lead a program on the basics of CPR.

You will learn how to perform CPR in adults, children, or infants, and how to help an adult, child, or infant who is choking.

This course is intended for members of the general community who want to learn CPR but do not need an official CPR course completion card. Space is limited to 25 registrants. To register, call 456-2400, ext. 2, or register at GPL.


Spend part of your vacation Friday aftemoon, April 18, at 2 p.m., exercising your mad Lego building skills with friends.

Bring your own bricks, or create with ours. As usual, creations that you bring to show off will be kept separate from the library supplies.

You can also take a turn on the Wii system to play a Lego videogame. We will meet in the Helderberg Room. Join the club.

Lego fans and gamers in grades 3 through 6 are encouraged to drop in.

Classic movie:

The General Inspector The Helderberg Room’s big screen shows a classic film the last Thursday of every month; this month’s flick - from 1949, about an antic inspector general - starts at 6:30 p.m., on Thursday, April 24.

Danny Kaye is in particularly eccentric and entertaining form as a medicine-show con artist who is mistaken by a town’s corrupt officials as being an inspector general traveling sub rosa.

Library closed GPL will be closed Sunday, April 20, for Easter. It will also be closed all day Wednesday, April 23, for Staff Development Day.

Your virtual library - at - is always open.

Go there to renew books, reserve materials, or get details on the Friday, May 9, author talk by noted journalist and author Robert MacNeil.
