Wanted: Hacker Without a Home
South Shore Public Libraries has a new Shape Space, complete with three 3-D printers, a computer lab with design software, and Lego robotics kits, and we want a hacker to use the space and let their creativity run wild!
Design prototypes in the lab and print tests with the 3-D printers; design and build your own Lego robot and create new challenges and obstacle courses for you and other robotics enthusiasts to overcome; push this technology to the limit, teach the community how to use it, and show it all off to the world!
We have the residence - are you the hacker we’re looking for?
If you are interested in this volunteer position, please send CV and a brief project proposal to Jeff Mercer at email@example.com.
Egbert and I revisited
South Shore Public Libraries is honoured that the new library in the Lunenburg County Lifestyle Centre will be the Margaret Hennigar Public Library. To celebrate, SSPL is pleased to present selections from Egbert and I, Mrs. Hennigar's popular column from the Lunenburg Progress-Enterprise.
We hope you've enjoyed perusing these selections from the Egbert and I archives - we're now in the last month of the one-year retrospective, with the final column to be posted on December 26. The full year of selections are collected here, so if you've missed one now is the time to get caught up!
This week, we are happy to present this column for you to enjoy, first published on February 15, 1984. How do you approach 'best before' dates - as a warning, or a challenge?
Random House Boycott Continues
SSPL would like to thank our patrons for their patience during the boycott, as well as the kind words of support and participation in the online petition - if you haven't yet signed it we encourage you to do so today!

This month, the featured title is The Lacemaker and the Princess by Kimberly Brubaker Bradley. Life in the French Court of Marie Antoinette versus life of the working poor - how different were they? how similar?
