1/28/20 Meeting

Photos

Tuesday, January 28 • One-On-One Help: 6-7pm • Presentation and Discussion: 7-8:15pm

DUNHAM PUBLIC LIBRARY, 76 MAIN ST., WHITESBORO, NY 13492

Hopefully you all had a wonderful holiday season and now we're ready to get back into learning mode!

One of the greatest advantages (Rick's opinion) to the computer in my pocket is the ability to take pictures any time I like! From cute things the kids do to snapping a pic of something you need to remember or refer to later, it's easy to end up with a large photo library. I, myself, have almost 6,000 photos on my phone and it's full, but I can't move them to my computer because it's full too! Peter has a similar issue moving from his old MacBook Pro to a new MacBook Air with a smaller hard drive. So how can we take some of those lesser accessed photos and split them off into a separate library that can easily be moved to an external storage device? This is something group president Dan Herrmann will be helping us with at this month's meeting on Tuesday night.

See you there!

Numbers vs. Excel

DUNHAM PUBLIC LIBRARY, 76 MAIN ST., WHITESBORO, NY 13492

It's that time of year again - membership dues will be due soon. See Cynthia at your next meeting to renew your membership!

Paul Franz will be our presenter for the February meeting. We'll be looking at the difference between Microsoft's popular spreadsheet software, Excel, and Apple's product, Numbers. Paul will show us the advantages of each and compare the desktop and mobile versions of Numbers.

As always, if there's something you'd be interested to learn more about please let one of the board members know so that we can work it into the schedule.

See you there!

Virtual Meeting Featuring Demos of FaceTime and Zoom

Tuesday, March 24 • FaceTime call begins at 6:00pm

Welcome to the future!

The library may be closed and we may not be permitted to gather in the same space, but that doesn't mean we can't still see each other and continue to learn from each other. Let's take this opportunity to experience something new. Let's use this month's meeting night to get everyone familiar with FaceTime and an application called Zoom.

4/28/20 Meeting

Scan Documents with Notes • Make a Ringtone • RB Digital Magazines and Audiobooks

Tuesday, April 28—Zoom Meeting at 6:30pm

The COVID-19 lockdown continues, so this month's meeting will be conducted using Zoom.

Rick Rogers will demonstrate how you can scan a document with your Apple device through the Notes app. This seems like an excellent time to show others this nifty trick, especially when people are working and educating at home where they might need to scan and email something they've completed on paper.

Have some extra time on your hands? Want to make your iPhone experience a little more personal? How about a custom ringtone? Dan Herrmann is going to demonstrate for us how we can make our own ringtones as use them on our iPhones!

If you'd like to spend some free time catching up on your favorite magazines without all of the subscription fees then Peter Chien has just what you need! The Mid-York Library System's RB Digital content is available to anyone with a library card and you can access scores of magazines and audiobooks from their vast collection without leaving your home (because you're not supposed to anyway!). Peter will demonstrate this cool resource tonight! If you're anxious to learn more about it you can check it out here: RB Digital.
