Kindle and iPad in the library

On 18 of January our center gave a presentation on “Kindle and iPad in the library” for librarians from Sumy region. Two of the best-selling readers in today’s market Amazon’s Kindle and Apple’s iPad are available thanks to a contribution from the American Embassy in Kiev. While both are ground breaking and very cool technology, they both have their own pros and cons for being used as a reading device. Every person has different reading habits, and each device can be used in different ways to fit into those habits. We demonstrated how to use Kindle and iPad, how to install new application, how to search the library catalog, how to create bookmarks, notes, and highlights, and view the annotations you created on your Kindle.

Winter is a wonderful time of holidays and presents. Everybody is in anticipation of marvelous celebration time. On that day waiting for New Year Eve and Christmas to come we shared joy with our volunteer Arden and were lucky to watch Christmas American movie and to have some cookies and sweets.

Conversation Circle

In December 7th and 14th were only two meetings of the Conversation Circle. The topic of the first one was “Hobbies”. People told about their hobbies, why they chose them and how they help them in everyday life. It is very interesting how many different hobbies have people. Some of them doing sports, some like to read, to cook or study foreign languages. Many people like visiting Cinemas and Theatres, some like to sing or dance and even knit. So it is makes no difference what kind of hobbies have people the point is they make them happier. During the second meeting people played special board games for English learners.
