Technology Help

With more time at home, have you thought you would like to create a website to share your passions, talents, interests or advice with the world? Dave Sullivan is still available for technical help, although he can not currently meet patrons in person.  Feel free to contact him at dave.sullivan@bixbylibrary.org and he would be happy to get you started or help you polish off a project that you have underway.

DigitalLearn.org is a collection of self-directed tutorials for end-users to increase their digital literacy. Feedback from public library staff directed Public Library Association to develop courses on the most basic skills, such as using a computer, navigating a web site, and searching. Modules are video-based with narration, 6 to 22 minutes long, and help learners practice skills like using a mouse and setting up passwords. Nearly all modules are available in Spanish as well as English.

Bixby Movie Showings – Moving Outside

We will be showing Beetlejuice, rated PG on July 31st at 6:30pm. A happy couple with a lovely country house die in a car accident and must haunt their old home while waiting to be processed into heaven. Too nice to be scary, they befriend the new tenant’s daughter. When they fail to prevent the girl’s parents from ruining the house, they ask a devilish spirit for help.

Bring your lawn chairs, blankets, takeout from local restaurants or picnic dinners, bug spray.

Do not park in the parking lot. Please park at the bank or in front or walk over. Wear your masks and keep 6ft between your group and other attendees. 

Rain Date: Saturday August 1 at 6:30-8:30pm
