FERRIS PUBLIC LIBRARY: More than books (May 16, 2019)
The Ferris Library will be holding a two day Basic Computer Class for beginners on Thursday, May 16 and Friday, May 17 from 10 a.m. to noon. Registration is required as we have limited seating. Aurora Ramirez will be the instructor. To register call 972-544-3696 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We send a big “Thank You!” to the Van Wey family. They generously donated their time and supplied the plants for the library’s flower bed and parking lot island. Beautiful roses are budding, it looks great!
Loujeanne Guye Ministries will be presenting a free Community Conference in the library’s Aubrey Trussell Meeting Room on Saturday, June 1st from 10 a.m. to noon. The theme for this meeting is “Restoring Hope When Life Crushes You!” Ms. Guye is an excellent presenter, and I’m sure everyone that attends will be enlightened.
After-School Game Time is held each Tuesday, from 3:30 to 5:30 p.m. Children ages 7 to 17 can play games on the PS4 on the large screen in the meeting room.
Story Time is hosted every Wednesday at 11 a.m. Children and their caregivers can enjoy stories and an activity. Each child is treated to a snack and may choose a toy from the Treasure chest to take home.

Crazy Words: Snickersnee sounds like something funny or possibly cute; it’s actually referring to a long, dangerous knife. It was first used in reference to cut-and-thrust fighting in the 1700s and is still occasionally used when referencing the knife.
