This is Juan Carlos Garcia. He owns a delightful little bodega just east of Franklin St. and Bruce Randolph called La Tienda Garcia. Walk into his store and the first thing you’ll notice is the divine smell of the fruits and vegetables on display in stacks — fresh plump apricots, bristling pineapples, fragrant melons, sweet yellow mangoes and of course, enough chile peppers, cilantro, tomatoes and onions to make salsa for a small army.
If you’re a small business owner who wants to increase exposure, if you work for someone who wants you to help promote their business, or even if you’re an activist organizing a rally, the Community Technology Center has some great classes coming up for you!
Beginning this Monday (August 4), ideaLAB will offer its first ever adult event: a weekly Learn to Code Meetup! We encourage anyone, at any level, with an interest in programming to come hang out and work on projects. Staff will be on hand to answer questions, but our hope is that everyone will participate in problem solving challenges and group projects.
Have you been wanting to learn Excel? The Central Library offers Excel Basics every month, followed by several modules at the same time the following weeks.
Start with the basics if you’ve never used Excel before, or if it’s been a while and you’re looking for a refresher. Then dive into modules to learn specific skills. You decide what’s right for you. The next series starts tomorrow!
Several weeks ago, Jesse Perez, along with some of the talented teens from ideaLAB, were asked to take a look at the L.E.D. message board that hangs above the Books and Borrowing checkout station. Considering the sign was pretty old, no one was sure if it could even be fixed!
Two weeks later, the sign was back in its place displaying an array of useful, multicolored greetings for DPL customers.
