Each month we will feature a new package to be bid on. This month’s package is a Cabin Fever Reliever. It is a basket filled with all sorts of things to get you through the cold winter months… a book (of course), a fleece blanket, specialty hot chocolate, coffee mugs, a movie, BOOMCHICKAPOP, a decorative wood sign, and chocolate!
Bidding starts Jan. 15 and will run through Jan. 31. Bidders can stop by the library to place a bid, or bid on the library’s Facebook page. The winning bidder will be announced on the next open day after the auction ends, which will be Tuesday, Feb. 1.
Proceeds will go toward future programming.
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.
