Pat Garrett recognized for Communtiy Achievement from the New Mexico Library Association

Pat Garrett, Library Director for 16+ years at the Capitan Library, received the 2016 Community Achievement Award at the NMLA Conference November 3rd in Albuquerque.

NMLA has been giving awards since 1957 to honor those who have made an important contribution on behalf of New Mexico Libraries. NMLA presents awards each year at the yearly conference.

    Tom Mann, who received the NM State Library
    Amigo Award in 2009, introduces Pat for the award.         
    NMLA Vice-President Lynette Schurdevin presents award to Pat.
  • Community Achievement Award – this award is give to librarians (those certified or with a degree) for outstanding library service or achievement at the local level. Also may be given as NMLA’s recognition of an award from another source that has enhanced the library, and to the entire library community; thus to a local, school, or academic librarian who has received a community, regional, or national honor.

As the Capitan Public Library celebrates its 20th anniversary in November 2016, it is ever so fitting for Pat to be recognized for her tireless work as the director of CPL for the past 16+ years.  The community enjoys a beautiful library that is well staffed by volunteers and offers many programs for the enlightenment of the patrons, their children and the rest of the population in this rural area.  Pat's leadership has been instrumental in the success of CPL. 

At the award dinner: Gerald Garrett, Larry Miller, Bill Jeffery, Tom Mann

Compuclinic: helping older adults on their computers & phones. At ENMU-Ruidoso on Thursdays

The first "Compuclinic"  (brand new name)  was a success with 5 students last Thursday.  Please check us out on Thursdays in the computer lab at ENMU-Ruidoso starting at 10am. Depending on interest, the session can last up to two hours.
This coming Thursday, November 17, we will start with a short video or lecture on terminology, followed by individual Q&A. The beauty of such an informal tutorial model is that we all help each other. Or, some of us help others, such as a fellow student convinced me to clean up my Face Book and it is working. 
Just a reminder. Bring your own device or use ENMU's computers.
The class is in the computer lab. 

Silas Laspada offers an informal tutoring session for us to practice our skills and to have our questions answered on computers or our iphones. Silas is a home school student who has volunteered to help us with this project. Small donations accepted for our instructor, but are optional.

Creative Aging wants to help older adults become as compatible with the digital world. Thank you for your consideration of this weekly tutorial session. 

ENMU is giving us the space & time to learn at our own pace and be supportive toward one another in the process.

The class will start at 10am and go for an hour or more depending on interest.
Hope to see you there.
So please check us out. Call or email with any questions.

Fort Stanton Museum needs volunteers

Significant need exists for volunteers at the Ft. Stanton Museum, which is located at Ft. Stanton, N.M. Currently, the museum is open seven days a week, and there are two shifts available: from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. and from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The duties that volunteers perform are basic and include welcoming visitors to the museum, providing the visitors with a short history/introduction about the museum (which, of course, you would first learn about), starting up a movie, and opening and/or closing the museum.

Right now, the need is greatest for weekend and mid-week volunteers and staff will work with you to try to accommodate your preference for the days and times you wish to serve.  

If you are interested in this volunteer opportunity, please feel free to contact the following individuals to let them know:

Bill Jeffrey, Ft. Stanton Volunteer Coordinator
Cell:      575-973-0369

Larry Pope, Historic Site Lead Ranger
Office: 575-354-2250
Cell:      505-469-7797
 Spread the word about this volunteer opportunity to other RSVP volunteers or persons who may be interested in volunteering at Ft. Stanton.
