Please join us Thursday, May 14, 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm in the Porter Room for a presentation by hypnotherapist, Susan Fox.
Susan will share her own near death experience and talk about the nature of near death experience in general. Learn how thoughts, feelings, and the vibrations you exude effect the nature of that experience. Ask questions and relate your own experiences. The program will also include some practical exercises.

No registration is required. This program is presented in partnership with Westlake Porter Public Library.
Are you curious about Windows 8? Do you need some time to work with Adobe Photoshop Elements? Maybe you have a question about an Excel formula or a Word table. You don't have to sign up for a class.
Come to the Westlake Porter Public Library Computer Lab. The computers in the lab offer Windows 8.1, Office 2013 and Adobe Photoshop Elements. There is staff on duty to answer questions at this times as well!
The Westlake Porter Public Library now has an iPad filled with special needs apps. Parents and Educators can test drive apps to decide if they want to buy them. We have apps for communication such as Proloquo2Go as well as apps for helping children with learning disabilities including writing, reading and math apps. We even have apps that help build social skills and design sensory breaks.
To see the iPad, visit the Youth Services desk at WPPL. You can use it in one of our study rooms and even have your child "try it out."
