Stage Performance by Livingston Taylor

Posted by heather in Reviews & Recommended Books

"Stage Performance" was a FABULOUS book.

Taylor has a wonderfully candid way of explaining every aspect of a "performance" so that even the most rank beginner can feel comfortable getting up on stage. He goes through everything from overcoming your fears to managing the business side of a budding career, and the best part is he speaks from practical experience (unlike so many books I've found on this topic).

But where this book really shines is in his discussion of the 'magic' that happens on stage -- the communication between performer and audience. The reason is because 90% of the books on the market that tout being able to make a performer out of the reader do NOT even touch on the actual act of performing -- they only discuss the aspects leading up to the stage. There's usually very little discussion of the things that come during and after. Taylor, however, goes into great detail outlining what marks a good performance -- especially a good performer -- from a bad one, and his tips for success are very straightforward. I highly recommend this book for musicians, as well as anybody who has to get up in front of people for any reason. There is an immense amount of good to be found in this book for all form of public speaking, entertaining, or musical performance.

From Storytime to Classes, October is a busy month!

Posted by heather in Events

It's Autumn again, and as life winds down from harvest and summer activities, the library picks up the slack with a LOT of new programs!

Starting October 3rd, your preschool age children (3 to 6) can come to the library Monday afternoons (2:30 to 3:15pm) to enjoy a story read by our director, Janet Lyon. 

Then beginning October 11th, we'll have storytimes for Babies (11:30 to 11:45am) and Toddlers (11:00 to 11:30am) every Tuesday.

Also beginning Tuesday mornings (and going through April) are our Basic Adult Computer Classes from 10 to 11am. The month of October will be spent covering beginning things like using a mouse and keyboard, as well as navigating through Microsoft Word. November will start with Microsoft Excel, December will cover Microsoft Publisher, January: the Internet -- including email and Library websites/databases. Some of these topics will repeat, so if you miss them this fall, you can possibly catch them later in the winter or early spring. (To pick up a full schedule, please visit us here at the library.)

Starting on Wednesday, October 5th, at 6:30pm we'll have a weekly, month-long class on social networking with Facebook and Twitter (for intermediate computer users). 

And remember the Friends of the Library booksale on October 8th! :)

For more information, please call the library (382-4131) or check out our full calendar of events.
