Hair loss is never easy. It can affect individuals of all ages, including children.
People may be undergoing treatment for cancer or they may be healthy. Appearance is very important in our society so there is always the question of how to live with hair loss and still look attractive. Some individuals wear wigs, hats or go bald. Fortunately for us who live with hair loss the web can provide important information, support, and resources.
There’s a new radio station in town, commercial-free and it came in without much fanfare. New since Oct. 31 and part of the Colorado Public Radio (CPR) family, it’s called OpenAir on 1340 AM.
The focus for this new station is new Indie Rock. In the email I received recently CPR said: “Explore new music and new possibilities on OpenAir.” They go on to say that “OpenAir will provide a comprehensive music experience focusing on new and recent music of the past 15 years with a Colorado perspective.”
If you got a fancy new Nook or Kindle for Christmas but aren't sure how to make it work with Denver Public Library's downloadable books, fret not! The Community Technology Center is providing FREE instruction to show you how it's done.
Come to one of our eMedia classes at the Central Library, or attend a Tech Petting Zoo at your neighborhood branch library to learn how to find, check out, download and transfer books to your reader.
If you have an eReader and/or laptop, please bring them to class. If you are curious about purchasing an eReader, devices will be available to try out!
Did you know that people who volunteer are more likely to be successful in school and at their jobs? Volunteering, whether at the library or another organization, is a great way to positively impact your community while strengthening your own skill set at the same time!
