   Research Made Fast & Easy:  With the end of the year in sight, maybe it is time for you to get a start on those research papers.  No worries, we are here to help!  And this class will give you a good start as to where you can find some great resources.  We will be looking at the ins and outs of TOPICsearch, a database that is offered to all patrons of Buda Public Library through the TexShare program.  Come and get a head start on those papers and maybe even impress your teachers while you’re at it.

Research Made Fast & Easy Part 2: Admit it, we all get a little scared when we hear the word “research”.  That is why, we, here at the library would like to give you some more pointers on how to make the research process a bit easier and faster for you.  We will be looking at a database called EBSCO Student Research Center and giving you some advice on how to search the database and others like it more efficiently and effectively.

Impressing with Prezi: Do you have a presentation coming up and want to do something other than a Powerpoint?  Or even just want to learn a skill that may come in handy in the future?  Come find out how to make a Prezi presentation.  If you are thinking, “what is a Prezi?”  check out the site at prezi.com. And feel free to come with questions!

Come on down to the library for an afternoon of international crafts, stories, and yummy refreshments as we celebrate children and books. To kick-off the fun, Mae Stoll and her Comedrumforfun students will rock the house with their African drumming, beginning at 2pm. Crafts, representing places around the globe, will be on-going from 2-5 p.m. Stories will be presented on the 1/2 hour beginning at 2:30 p.m. and refreshments, generously provided by Garcia’s Mexican Restaurant of Buda, will be in the library’s meeting room while they last. Looking forward to seeing you Saturday, May 5th.
