Library: Learn to write for the web | Review by Chanhassen

Join the Carver County Library and Loft Literary Center for an online seminar where you’ll learn how to write for the web.

When you visit a company or organization’s website, you’re not looking for the same things as a good book, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t art to write for the web. . Writing for the Web will provide content organization and presentation strategies for the medium it serves.

This course, funded by MELSA, is offered online Tuesday, June 28 from 7-8:30 p.m. Visit www.carverlib.org to register.

ONLINE WORLD

Experience one of these titles that each feature a different story and connection to the online world.

“The Librarian of Memory” by Janelle Monae. “The Memory Librarian” offers readers stories rooted in the human trials of identity expression, technology and love, but also reaching into the worlds of memory and time within, as well than the stakes and the power that exist there.

“Proving Ground: The Untold Story of the Six Women Who Programmed the World’s First Modern Computer” by Harrison Query. Top-secret ballistics and computer research, begun during the war to aid those on the front lines, continued across the United States as engineers and programmers raced to complete their classified assignments. Among them were six pioneering women, tasked with discovering how to program the world’s first versatile, programmable, all-electronic computer.

“Risk factor” by Michael Brandman. Buddy Steel, acting sheriff of Freedom, Calif., is enjoying a well-deserved rest at a friend’s mountain hideaway when he’s called home to investigate a home invasion at his father’s address. The break-in is just part of a series, perpetrated by ingeniously inventive burglars. To complicate matters, Buddy must also investigate a series of cybercrimes targeting local businesses and individuals, an area well outside of his experience and comfort zone.

“You are what you click” by Brian Primack. While many of us turn to social media in search of a sense of connection and comfort, data shows that it can paradoxically leave us more alone and depressed. Drawing on over 20 years of original research, Dr. Primack explains the fascinating nuances of our relationship with social media, its impact on our mental health, and the dangers of social media using us instead of the other way around.
