Guilderland Library Notes for Thursday, August 8, 2013

"Dig Into Reading" with Tom Sieling at the Guilderland Public Library on Friday, Aug. 9, at 2 p.m.

Widely acclaimed singer, guitarist, and banjoist, and a hit with kids of all ages, Tom Sieling will perform at the Guilderland Public Library’s Dig Into Reading concert at 2 p.m., on Friday, Aug. 9.

Tom’s show invites and inspires audience participation. He knows how to connect with children, and is “sure to raise even the most reticent out of their seats! We ‘howled at the moon, sang a wild tune,’ and wanted even more!” in the words of Nicole Carner, director of the Pember Library and Museum in Granville, NY.

 No registration is required for this concert, but early arrival is encouraged.

Reading records due

Attention Summer Reading Club members: Your reading records are due to the library on or before Friday, Aug. 9.  So read those final pages, log your reading, and make sure you get credit for all the wonderful reading you’ve done this summer.

Here’s an idea: drop your reading record off when you come to the Dig Into Reading concert that same day. You’ll have a great time, and guarantee that your reading will be rewarded at the Summer Reading Club grand finale on Thursday, Aug.15.

Photo restoration

 How do you restore a digital photograph to its original condition? Find out at the Digital Photo Forum on Thursday, Aug.t 15, at 7 p.m.

Forum member Herb Brown will show the work he did to digitally restore a photograph. His simple yet effective technique is one you can probably put to good use.

Area photographers gather to discuss work they are doing and to share information about how to improve their work. This is an open forum, with occasional special guest photographers. You’re invited to bring your work to share and your questions. Bring work on memory cards, USB drives, or CDs. The group meets the third Thursday of each month.
