Tech Help at Brooks Library

Almost everybody has a tech question, and Matthew Wojcik, the library's Electronic Services Support Specialist, offers free individual help on a wide variety of computers and mobile devices for all library patrons. Contact Matt or the Reference Desk to book one of the appointment slots, which are usually Mondays 5:00-7:00 and Thursdays 1:00-2:00. If those times don't work, it's good to inquire anyway, and Matt will make other arrangements when he can.

Winterpills and Antje Duvekot at Next Stage on Saturday, January 21

Next Stage Arts Project and Twilight Music present indie/folk/chamber-pop quintet Winterpills, plus contemporary folk singer/songwriter Antje Duvekot, at Next Stage on Saturday, January 21 at 7:30 pm.

One of the most exciting bands to emerge from Northampton, MA in recent years, Winterpills plays haunting, delicate, dynamic music with shimmering melodies and aching lyrics. Critically praised as a mirror of sorrows and a beacon of hope, the music of Winterpills - true to the band’s name - is medicine for weary hearts.

Cyber Threats. How Real Are They?

Working in the IT field I often see a common occurrence with businesses and consumers alike. Everyone hears about large companies being hacked or their neighbors computer catching a virus, but often times people do not put as much priority on their computers security as they should. We all hope that it never happens to us, and many people think they are too small to be a target for hackers. The truth is, smaller targets are often easier to attack so instead of spending months trying to penetrate a large corporation or financial institution, hackers will spend far less time attacking many small businesses at once.

The End of Free VY Calendars

Everyone who moved to southern Vermont in the last few decades was treated to a free calendar. It was sent out each year by Vermont Yankee (and later Entergy) and featured old photos from historical societies in the area.

These calendars contained the required safety information for the nuclear plant about emergency notifications, iodine tablets, special alert radios, evacuating the area, shelters, what to do with pets, siren testing, and a message about how radiation is natural and accidents unlikely.

The final calendar (unless one shows up soon) was sent out in 2016. Sure, it contains mini-calendar in the back for 2017 and 2018, but it was the final full calendar sent.
