January events at the Kannapolis Library

Learn to use your eReader: Did you get an ereader for Christmas but aren’t sure how it works? Bring it with you to this informal session where we will discuss the basic functions of ereaders and go over how to use it, including downloading a book. Jan. 8, 2013, at 11 a.m. and repeated on Jan. 10 at 5:30 p.m.
Kannapolis Classics Book Club: Discussion of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” by Ken Kesey. In this classic of the 1960s, Kesey’s hero is Randle Patrick McMurphy, a boisterous, brawling, fun-loving rebel who swaggers into the world of a mental hospital and takes over. Jan. 15 at 5:30 p.m.
Beginning Computers: Feel like you know nothing about computers? We will go over the very basics: how to log on to a library computer, how to use a mouse, and some very basic terms and functions. This is a class for those with very little or no experience with computers. Registration required, 704-920-1180. Jan. 23 at 10 a.m. and repeated on Jan. 26 at 2 p.m.
Geektastic Fun with Duct Tape: Are you addicted to duct tape? Want to learn how to make phone cases, cosmetic bags, or a tote bag with duct tape? Join us for our geektastic craft using this versatile and water proof material. Ages 12 and up. Jan. 24 at 5 p.m.
Live Long & Read: a SciFi & Fantasy Book Club: Join us at the RCCC Research Campus Library at 399 Biotechnology Lane in Kannapolis for “A Discovery of Witches” by Deborah Harkness. A richly inventive novel about a centuries-old vampire, a spellbound witch, and the mysterious manuscript that draws them together. Jan. 25 at noon.
Young at Heart Book Group: Are you addicted to teen fiction? Join us for a discussion of a different teen book each month. Adults and teens welcome. January’s book is “The Fault in Our Stars” by John Green. Sixteen-year-old Hazel meets 17-year-old Augustus at a support group for teens with cancer. Hazel is tethered to an oxygen tank and is a slave to the drugs that pulled her back from death two years ago. Augustus lost his leg but is in remission. Together, they will figure out sickness, health, life, death and the legacy that one leaves behind. Jan. 29 at 5:30 p.m.
