Teens are invited to learn more about "adulting." In this program we will focus on making and managing a budget, but other valuable information about credit/credit scores, filing taxes, buying and insuring a vehicle, health insurance, and first-time renting will be provided.
This class will teach you how to utilize the free database Familysearch.org to research family genealogy.
Part 3's topic is Tracing your family back into slavery. Slave research is very challenging, but not impossible. Henry Bibb was a famous abolitionist, but outside of his own memoir, hardly left a trace of his life as a slave in north Louisiana in the 1840s. Henry and Mariah Means’ lives have been traced to their times as slaves on Roseneath Plantation in De Soto Parish. Contact the Genealogy Department for more information.

Come learn the basics of how to use an email account, including what kind of information is needed to create an account, what the symbols at the top and bottoms of your emails mean, how to attach and print documents, and general email safety. Please note that we will not be setting up individual email accounts during this class.
If you would like to learn the basics on how to use a computer, but don’t know where to start, then the David Raines Library has the class for you! Computer Basics is a hands-on 6-week class giving a very basic introduction to the parts of the computer and how to use them, focusing on its primary navigational tool, the mouse. This class is designed for people with little to no computer experience, so don’t hesitate to sign up if you fall into one of these categories. Call or visit the branch to register; space is limited.
