All of our computers have the same programs:  Windows 10, Office 2016, multiple Internet browsers, and can print double-sided in black, or in color.  Printing is free for students; community members pay 10 cents per side for black, and 25 cents per side for color prints.  
HP LaserJet Enterprise M605 series
Speaking of printers, we also have a brand new HP LaserJet Enterprise m605 duplex printer, capable of producing 56 pages per minute!   Our "old" HP LaserJet has been moved to the library's computer lab, where it will continue to print double-sided, if only at 45 pages per minute.   

As always, a member of the library staff will be happy to assist you--don't hesitate to ask!

Escape to Paris

Ernest Hemingway moved around the world a lot; in the 1920s, he lived in Paris, with his first wife.  A Moveable Feast is his account of that time, when he was a struggling journalist and writer.

In the 1964, after his death, his fourth wife reworked the unpublished manuscript and had it published.

And in 2010, Hemingway's grandson (by Hemingway's second wife), Sean, reedited the book, including sections that apparently were left out of the original.  A Moveable Feast, the Restored Edition is the result of research and includes personal family connections.

Join the WMCC Lunchtime Book Group on Thursday, March 23, at noon in the Library. Bring your lunch!

Books and audios are available in the library.
