Branch manager Matt Lowder is excited about a couple programs coming up at the North East library.
On Tuesday, September 12, 6:30 p.m., the library will host "Ancient Origins: Egypt".
"We value and enjoy the responsibility we have when we do history programs," said Lowder.
Jason Toy, a professor at Cecil College, will share the importance of a civilization who gave the world the first timekeeping device, first facial makeup, and other engineering marvels.
“Any event that exposes the public to history is well worth it,” Toy said. “I encourage people to take the time to come out and give it a try. It will be interactive and informative.”
On Monday, September 18 at 6:30 p.m., the North East branch will host "Using Facebook Strategically".
Presenter Ryan Del Gallo will discuss tools and practices to get the most out of social media.
"We have so many wonderful businesses on North East Main St. and we want to be able to offer them more resources, digital resources, and the expertise of a person who can come in and talk to them face to face," Lowder said.
Laura Metzler, who runs the small business information center at the Elkton Central library, helps North East set up its small business programs.
"Facebook is an easy way to connect with your area, community, and customers," said Lowder. Lowder mentioned Sweet Spot Bake Shop on Main St. as one business who has used Facebook effectively.
"They have been able to harness the power of the things you can do with Facebook," Lowder said. "Everyone has Facebook. Some use it well and others struggle with it. The program will be very valuable to people."

Lowder said the capacity of the room is 35 and the library is aiming to attract at least 25 patrons for both events.
