LinkedIn: the business social network
Learn about the premier business oriented social network. You've heard of LinkedIn. Your friends send you emails asking you to connect through it. But what is LinkedIn? Is it worth your time? If it is worth your time, what do you need to do? This presentation will explain what LinkedIn is about and how it works. We will discuss the basics of creating a personal profile. And we will discuss the sorts of activities individuals can undertake on LinkedIn to advance their career goals.
Andrejs Penikis will be presenting. A resident of Swarthmore for over 20 years (yes, a newcomer), he has worked in digital communications in recent years and is sometimes called an expert in social media marketing. (Don't call him a Social Media Ninja, however; he finds the term pretentious and insipid.) He is also an expert in Soviet politics and basketball history, topics he will not be addressing in this forum. To find out more about him, look at his LinkedIn profile: http://www.linkedin.com/in/andrejspenikis/ You may tweet questions to him at https://twitter.com/andrejspenikis
If this subject sounds interesting to you, come to Borough Hall. Bring your laptops and your questions.
Swarthmore Public Library regularly offers e-book and audio-book download drop-in sessions the second Friday of the month at 10am. To learn to use a tablet or e-reader to borrow library materials, come on down to the Swarthmore Public Library and join us. Borrowing books is easy once you get your device set up, and we’re happy to guide you through the initial set-up. Please bring the device that you wish to read or listen on. We can help you with Android, iPad/Phone/PodTouch, Kindle, Nook, and we’ll take a stab at anything else you want to throw by us. Please keep in mind this month the program is specifically geared to help with library borrowing, though we can try to help with other more general technical questions.
These sessions will be limited to 10 participants in order to give participants individual attention, so please sign up early!
Tai Chi Chih with April Leffler
T’ai Chi Chih is composed of 19 separate moves and one pose. Most of the moves are repeated individually several times on the left and right side to promote balance and relaxation. Unlike T’ai Chi, this class is not a martial art, is “user friendly” and is practiced for its many health benefits. It is easy to learn, does not require physical fitness or coordination and movements can be adapted to be done while seated or for physical limitations.
Come and experience joy through movement. Learn these gentle movements that can help reduce stress & chronic pain, dissolve tension, improve balance and increase focus & concentration. See how this "moving meditation" can easily be done by anyone, regardless of age or physical condition! Call to register for this 10 class series. Class size is limited. Come and discover how T'ai Chi Chih can benefit you!
Author Talk: Rachel Pastan on Alena
"This skillfully crafted novel, which sustains the tension of a ghost story, is both an homage to Daphne du Maurier’s Rebecca and an insightful meditation on our obsessive preoccupation with death— simultaneously creepy and entrancing.” –John Irving
"I was utterly captivated by this novel, as much by the beautifully evoked Cape Cod landscapes and the glimpses into the rarefied world of art as by the increasingly suspenseful mysteries at its center. Rachel Pastan is a marvelous storyteller." –Ann Packer
