Georgetown Library Goes Indonesian For a Night

“Selamat Siang, Apa Kabar?”These are a few of the phrases that participants learned at Georgetown’s recent Indonesian Culture and Folktales event. But there was much more to learn than just how to say "Good Afternoon" and "How Are You."On display were batik fabrics, statues, and coconut carvings from Bali, Indonesia. The kids even got a chance to handle wayang kulit, shadow puppets that have been used for at least 800 years in Indonesia.

There are still a few more spaces available for the four-week Tuesday evening class starting in March.If you can knit and want to learn how to make socks, then please sign up before it's too late!

Along the way, they made some amazing allies and some awful enemies. Now that the fight is over, they're faced with a different problem as Wisty finds herself attracted to the new kid on the block.

New Dates and Times for Downloadable Media Clinics

Tuesdays 7:30-8:30 p.m. and Fridays 10-11 a.m.

We know that downloading library e-books and audiobooks can be confusing, even for the tech-savvy among us. That is why we have offered personalized assistance at Georgetown on a drop-in basis for over a year. Lately, our clinics have become a bit crowded, so we decided to expand them to twice a week to be able to help even more customers.

The more recent films are adaptations of spy novels by Robert Ludlum and John le Carré. All movies are shown at 6 p.m. in the large lower-level meeting room. Free admission.
