Memory Lab: "What is Your Digital Afterlife?"
Monday, August 6th at 6:00 p.m.

People are constantly creating a "digital afterlife" online through email, Facebook, Instagram, and other social media platforms. On Monday evening, the Library will offer a Memory Lab program that covers what happens to your digital history when you're no longer around. This event will help you prepare your electronic estate as you learn what happens to your digital assets after death. You'll also learn how to create and protect your digital legacy. Participants are welcome to bring electronic devices or examples of items they would like to save.

On Tuesday morning at 10:00 a.m. Cathy Jerome will teach patrons of all ages how to care for a cat or kitten. Adoptable felines from Hal's Haven and the Humane Society will be joining her for the visit. This event will be held in the Community Room.
