A representative working with the new eResource cloudLibrary will visit the Ojai Library at 1 p.m. on Saturday, August 12 to show you customers how to access this convenient new tool. Customers can bring their eReaders and mobile devices in to learn about what cloudLibrary has to offer and get help setting up their accounts. There will be a rundown of the first-time user experience and how to use the app, and library staff will be on hand to answer questions.

CloudLibrary is part of the effort to streamline eBook and eAudiobook collections from being accessed through multiple vendors to one simple, convenient service. You can use the cloudLibrary app to access not only our digital holdings, but those of our partner libraries as well. This means access to more copies of your favorite titles with improved wait times!

This event is free and open to the public. For additional information, contact Ron Solórzano, Regional Librarian, at 218-9146.

The Ojai Photo Club will feature photographer Nancy Lehrer for its August presentation, “Building a Photo Story: Personal Documentary Projects.” The free event will be held at 7 p.m. on August 15, 2017, in Help of Ojai’s Kent Hall, 111 W. Santa Ana Road.

Over the past two years Lehrer has worked on two personal documentary projects involving close family members. The first followed her parents after they had moved into an assisted living apartment. The second, a longer story, chronicled the first four months of her husband’s slow recovery from Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Although she has achieved master’s degrees in Music and Computer Science, she has always held on to her passion for photography.

For more information about Lehrer’s work, go to her website, http://www.inancyimages.com or to her blog, https://inancy.wordpress.com.

Monthly free presentations are part of the Ojai Photography Club’s community service and education outreach. The general public is always welcome to attend. More information is available at: www.ojaiphotoclub.com/
