Backing Up Your Data

Darrell Fortae, owner of Everlast Software, will be here on Wednesday, August 22 at 6:00 p.m. to talk about how to back up your electronic data from your computer, tablet, or smartphone. He’ll go over the different types of disasters that can take place and how to protect yourself from multiple cases.

Tuesday Evening Book Group

On Tuesday, August 14 at 6:00 p.m. we will discuss Gail Honeyman’s 2017 novel, Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.

No one has ever told Eleanor, a socially awkward, routine-oriented loner, that life should be better than fine. Then she meets Raymond, a bumbling IT guy from her office, and together they save Sammy, an elderly gentleman who has fallen on the sidewalk. The three forge a friendship that saves them from the lives of isolation and secret unhappiness they have each been living.
