The Stark County District Library will offer a great program at branch near you this week. A sampling of the events planned for the next 7 days include Genealogy programs, a Technology Q & A with SCDL's Information Technology specialists, informative programs on Social Security, and several awesome Art programs for teens.
Each program below is linked to the Stark County District Library Events calendar, where you'll get more information about the program (such as the time the event is offered) and have the opportunity to register online or by phone to attend. Just as a word to the wise, if for some reason the links in my post don't work, you can always find these programs and their details at www.StarkLibrary.org/eventscalendar.
The coming week offers two Genealogy programs at SCDL: Family Genealogy on Wednesday, Feb 22 at Dehoff Memorial Branch will give you the tools you need to begin tracing your family's history.
