Library offers classes on digital magazine, music apps
Spring has finally arrived in Polson, and everything is so green. Here at the library we are gearing up to celebrate the upcoming royal wedding with an Adult Coloring Program on Thursday, May 17 at 2 p.m. Angela has her fascinator picked out and is preparing a coloring party fit for the Queen. We even have the “official” Harry and Meghan Coloring Book to celebrate. Join us for this fun and relaxing event in the library meeting room.
Our digital magazine selection has grown this month. You can access digital versions of your favorite magazines for free through the Flipster link on our website homepage or download the app. We have added Birds & Blooms, Field & Stream, Men’s Health, Astronomy and McCall’s Quilting to our existing selections. If you missed a month or are looking for that recipe you saw in the Taste of Home at the doctor’s office, you can also access back issues.
Freegal Music has recently upgraded its website and mobile app. The new interface is easier to use and there is so much great music you can download and keep for free. You can also stream music – create your own playlist or use one of theirs.
Not familiar with how to use Flipster or Freegal? Heather is offering a class at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 15 to demonstrate both, as well as help you get signed up for our texting service, Shoutbomb. She is also offering Internet Basics 3 at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29. Bring your internet questions for Heather to answer.
