Do you want to lead a book discussion?”

December 1, 2015

The library will be hosting a community read event, highlighting Christina Baker Kline’s Orphan Train, starting in January 2016 and we need your help!

We will be offering several book discussion programs in the library and other locations around the community to invite people to come together and discuss this thought provoking story. 

We want to invite you to be involved by leading one of these discussions. So far we will have at least 4 book discussion events at the library, at the Culler Senior Center, and at the High Point Museum. These discussions will primarily target adults and Senior adults.

Do you enjoy discussing books with others? Then you would be perfect for this! You don’t need prior experience in leading book discussions because the library will provide free training and discussion questions in mid-January. If you haven’t read Orphan Train, that’s okay. The library can provide a free copy for you to read.

If you’re interested, please contact Nancy Metzner at 883-3650 or nancy.metzner@highpointnc.gov

Adaptive Technology

November 16, 2015

We have adaptive technology—track ball mice and LP keyboards now available in the PCC.  We also have a new magnification station on the 2nd floor that allows customers to magnify reading materials to be large enough to allow ease in reading books, magazines, newspapers, letters, any printed materials.

Library customers are welcome to stop by the 2nd floor and try out any of our new adaptive technology equipment.  Staff would be happy to give some one-on-one tutor time in the use of any of the new equipment as well.
