Smartboard and Brightlink Trainings

SMART Board Brightlink Training FlyerAttention faculty and staff — the Library will be offering SMART Board and Brightlink Trainings throughout the Spring Semester.

SMART Boards and Brightlink projectors provide new ways to make learning interactive and enhance teaching. Now is the time to learn how to use them in your classroom. Each workshop will demonstrate how to get started with these devices, and will provide the foundation for creating your own lessons that take advantage of the interactive whiteboards.

SMART Board sessions will be held in the Main Campus Library Makerspace, while sessions at the North Hudson Library will be held in the Library Bibliographic Instruction Room (N305).

For questions, please contact John DeLooper at jdelooper@hccc.edu or x4723.

New Fiction

The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt PS3570 .A657 G65
DGoldfinchonna Tart draws an exceptional portrait of a boy and all the trauma and pleasures that can carve his life into manhood. The title comes from a painting which Theo clandestinely possesses, leading him to a world of underground art and  rich patrons, a far cry from his beginnings. The description of characters and the plot line are just the right balance to keep a reader like me truly interested. ~Cynthia

This is the Story of a Happy Marriage by Ann Patchett NHC PS3566.A7756Z46
DuThisIsTheStoryring the Winter Holidays I got much reading done, and one of my favorite books was this one. Ann Patchett is a smooth writer and can tread lightly or go deeply into what it means to be love (Grandmother, dog, husband) and what it is to live very independently. These stories are a collection of her writings from magazines such as Harpers and Atlantic Monthly, as well of short memoirs. Grouped together, they reflect a smart woman who knows what she wants and also how to get it. ~Cynthia

YoungHearts  Young Hearts Crying by Richard Yates PS3575.A83Y6
Yates, similarly to his more famous Revolutionary Road, set the stage with a marriage which is crumbling. Ego, ambition, failure, adultery, all play a part in this portrait set in the decades of the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s, which Yates seems most comfortable using as a backdrop for his melancholy and isolated relationships.~Cynthia
