Viola Book Club
Viola Book Club meets the third Tuesday of the month at 1:30 pm (next meeting December 13, due to the holidays).
Please contact the library if you wish to join the discussion and/or read the book.
We are currently reading “10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works–A True Story” by Dan Harris. Anyone is welcome to join!
Gale Courses are 6-week online courses. Users need to set up an account to participate, and use your SWLS library card number to get free access. The courses are asynchronous, so there are no set times that a patron has to sign in to be part of a class. Lectures are recorded. Course materials do progress over the 6 weeks, though, so working through lessons on a roughly weekly basis is generally what would be advised.
For some courses, certificates of completion are provided if the patron receives a sufficient grade (some of these could count toward CE hours, in case of interest); other courses have no grades or certificates.
