Cord Cutting 101 and more at the Public Computer Center

Are you sick of paying your cable company more and more money for channels and features that you never use? Consider cutting the cord with help from your library! Cord-cutting is the pattern of viewers cancelling their subscription television services available over cable, or dropping pay television channels in response to competition from media available over the internet. To learn more, come to Cord Cutting 101 at the library. The class will be held at the Delaware Free Branch in Callicoon on Tuesday, February 19th from 5:30-7:30pm, and at the Tusten-Cochecton Branch in Narrowsburg on Monday, February 25th from 5:30-7:30pm. Programs with less than 5 people pre-registered may be cancelled.  To register visit the library online at WSPLonline.org . For more information visit our website or call (845) 887-4040 (Callicoon), or (845) 252-3360 (Narrowsburg).

The Public Computer Center also has two programs that recur every month; Jeffersonville Robot Club and Open Technology Support. Open Technology Support is a time for patrons to bring their various devices into the library to get one-on-one support from Abram VanHassel, the library’s Multimedia Technician. Open Support Hours are on Mondays at the Delaware Free Branch in Callicoon from 1-4pm, Wednesdays at the Tusten-Cochecton Branch in Narrowsburg from 4-7pm, and Fridays at the Jeffersonville Branch in Jeffersonville from 10am-1pm. The open hours for Monday, February 11th are cancelled for this month, as are the hours Monday, February 18th, due to President’s Day. There is no registration process for Open Technology Support and patrons are helped in the order they arrive. 

The Jeffersonville Robot Club is a monthly gathering for older children and teens, ages 8 and up. On the last Tuesday of every month at 4:30pm, the Robot Club meets at the Jeffersonville Branch of the Western Sullivan Public Library to assemble various robotic kits, provided by the library. These kits teach the children valuable aspects of STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math). This month’s project is building an FM Radio with Snap Circuits! Since the library supplies the robotics kits for the students, registration is limited to only 10 students each month and the registration is first come, first served. Patrons can register online at wsplonline.org or by calling the Jeffersonville Branch at (845) 482-4350.
