Kids and teens invited for coding class


Copyright © 2021 Roswell Daily Record

Just about everyone has a phone these days because that one device can do so many things. There are always new apps and technology being introduced, but someone has to create those. For kids and teens who are looking into coding as a hobby or even a future career, they’ll want to attend “Let’s Get Coding” on Monday, Nov. 19 at 5 p.m. Kids ages 6 and older will learn how to code basic actions, games and apps and participate in “App Time” to explore S.T.E.M.-related apps. Attendees can use one of the library’s tablets or bring in their own device. We’ll be adding in new apps and programs to this session including activities for those who like board games. The borrowed iPads are limited quantity so if a child needs to use one, make sure to arrive early to guarantee their place.

For more information, you can call 575-622-7101, visit 301 N. Pennsylvania, find the website at roswell-nm.gov/405/ and like us on Facebook and Instagram @RPLnm.

Book Talk by Tomás González

It is that time of the year again to get ready for the holidays and more importantly, the food that comes with these holidays. The traditional main course of turkey gets most of the credit during this time of year, but we all know that the food items that complete the festivities are the side dishes and desserts. Available for checkout are some books that contain nothing but side dish and dessert recipes. In addition, some digital magazines available through the library’s RB Digital service can help with holiday meal dilemmas that will be yours to keep.

“The Best American Side Dishes” from the editors of Cook’s Illustrated seeks to add to the traditional and non-traditional side dishes. The book is not Thanksgiving or Christmas specific, but can be used to get some ideas to add to the mix during the holidays or throughout the rest of the year. Many of the classic side dishes are included such as mashed potatoes, green beans and sweet potato casseroles. Variations of how to prepare these classic dishes are discussed in order to delight those tired of the same old thing.

There’s also a great guide to desserts in the library called “The Pie and Pastry Bible” by Rose Levy Beranbaum. This recipe book is filled with tasty treats that will please all party-goers whose favorite course during the fall holidays is the desserts. Instructions on how to prepare a crust along with a multitude of recipes for fruit, custard, meringue, and chiffon pies are included. Also, pastries that range from puff pastry and croissants, Danish pastry and brioche. Techniques, tips, equipment plus fillings, toppings, sauces and glazes can all be found in this wonderful resource for those with a sweet tooth.

Also available through the library to help with recipe ideas during the holidays or during the year are our digital magazines available through RB Digital on your computer or through their app. Magazines such as “Allrecipes,” “Bon Appétit,” “Cook’s Illustrated,” “Country Living,” “Rachel Ray Every Day,” “The Food Network Magazine,” “Martha Stewart Living,” and more are filled with recipes that library patrons can download and keep as their own. For help in checking out these digital magazines inquire with the reference librarians to help guide you in the process of enjoying this library service.
