Read to Smiles Unleashed therapy dogs and receive a free sticker and a book. Puppy kisses will be included. The dogs and their handlers will be in the Children’s Department today from 10:30-11:30 a.m.

Last Monday’s computer classes were a success, but don’t forget to keep coming back. This Monday will be the second class for adults. The classes are already full, but if you did sign up, please make sure you attend at your allotted time of 1 p.m. or 5 p.m. Even though the classes are full, Andrew does still offer one-on-one computer help with patrons throughout the week.

Tuesday will mark the return of the Polk Works Mobile One-Stop Bus. It will be outside our library from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. The unit allows for individuals to search for jobs online, prepare resumes, and submit applications for open positions. All of their services are free. For information, call 863-508-1100.

If you can carry it, they can help. Our own version of a geek squad will be available Wednesday, Sept. 19, from 3-5 p.m. to provide assistance for patrons needing technological guidance.

With the exception of library related assistance, Tech Interns from the International Baccalaureate program will be here to help. Bring in your troublesome iPads, iPods, cell phones, laptops or even tricky digital sewing machines. Sessions are set at 30-minute increments and pre-registration is preferred, but walk-ins are welcome.

Story times are back in their second week of fun. Wednesday at 10 a.m. is the 3-5-year-old story time, featuring stories, finger plays, music and films.

Thursday at 10 is for 18 months to 2 years, featuring nursery rhymes, finger plays, music and bubbles.

Next Saturday will be the third movie of the month. Nicholas Sparks’ book to movie, “The Lucky One,” starring Zac Efron, will be shown. The movie starts at 2:30 p.m. and runs for 101 minutes. It is rated PG-13 and may not be suitable for children. Refreshments will be available for purchase.
