Although the City maintains an electronic notice board, we still have a paper bulletin board. It hangs on the short stretch of wall between the two sets of doors on the City building side of the library. Our rules are that every flyer posted there must be dated, and we occasionally go through and remove everything that is older than 30 days or not dated at all.
Unfortunately this means we sometimes remove very useful information. So for the sake of quasi-permanence, and to find a wider audience, here is some information from flyers we discarded.
Silver Spring Camera Club, since 1950. Guest speakers, workshops, mentoring programs, safaris and field trips (US and abroad), social activities. Meets at 7:30 PM on the first and third Thursdays of each month at the Marvin Memorial Methodist Church. (That is the church located right in the intersection at Four Corners, where University crosses Colesville.)
Experience Corps 55 or older? Give a few hours a week to children in a District school. Currently over 1,000 volunteers have joined this national program. Call 202.797.1150 or write email@example.com
Interages, since 1986. Adults aged 50 plus needed for one hour per week: reading, dialogues, homework help, etc. Montgomery County schools in Wheaton, Silver Spring, Rockville, Gaithersburg and Germantown. Please call 301.949.3551
At the library itself we need homework helpers to come in after school to help kids who may have no one at home to give homework support. We are currently covered for Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays, but are still looking for someone for Mondays and/or Fridays. Please call Karen MacPherson at 301.891.7259.Posted by library at October 9, 2006 06:23 PM
