Easier than I thought--printing PDF

Last night, a student had a pdf file to print from Blackboard but it looked unusual in that there was no print icon on the pdf document's toolbar. When we tried to print using the File menu, nothing was being sent to the printer. Jamie just walked over, right-clicked on the document, and that was that! Easy as pie! (which I do not think is too easy--where did that expression come from?)

Okay---I even bought Tiki torches!

Last night, I bought Tiki torches for the backyard to appease the gods of spring! It is still snowing. Anybody have other ideas?

The BIG READ display at Pierce Library

Come in and check out the display of Chinese objects and supplementary materials to support our town reading The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan. Watch the newspapers and posters around town for the schedule of events to celebrate and magnify the themes of this book.

There is a trunk show from the Kam Wah Chung Museum on May 11th at 2 PM , a presentation 'The Chinese in Early La Grande" at 11 am on May 3rd, and a discussion led by our own Dean Levine on May 17th at 2 PM of the Joy Luck Club, all free programs and held at the Public Library downtown La Grande. It is not too late to read the book and get in on the activities! All of our free copies have been distributed but the bookstore in La Grande stocks the title or you can get a copy through interlibrary loan. Stop in and we will show you how to do that!
