Someone is always tracking you. Whether it’s on social media, phone calls or the websites you visit, your daily activities are monitored, recorded, collected and stored. Who is collecting this information?
The Pulaski County Public Library is celebrating National Library Week next week.
The staff will feature technology help on Tuesday, April 16 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. If you’ve been to the library and need help accessing library services from your tech device, all of your questions will be answered during this time.
The Pulaski County Public Library is working hard at expanding its services, and to that end, the library has added digital magazine and MP3 music file downloads to its collection. The library’s website now offers access to more than 3 million downloadable songs, including access to The Freegal Music Service, an online database with legal music files that do not expire and are compatible with nearly all devices.
Pulaski County Public Library resident cardholders are eligible for three MP3 downloads per week, available online at www.pulaskicounty.lib.in.us. Library officials expect Freegal will appeal to patrons of all ages and musical tastes, and librarians will be happy to assist users with the new service.
Santa Claus is coming to Pulaski County! He’ll be making himself at home at the Pulaski County Public Library in Winamac on Thursdays and Saturdays from Dec. 6 to 22.
The library has already been all decked out for the season, with a decorated tree in the reading room and a wonderful winter scene throughout the library. Santa will be at the library to pose for pictures and hear children’s Christmas wishes this season.
