Now that November is here, it’s that time of year again…HOLIDAY SHOPPING. But never fear, the Niles Library is here!
The holidays can be stressful when you’re trying to find gifts, sending out greeting cards, AND managing your money all while trying to keep your sanity in tact. That’s why we’ve got three great programs this month to help you get through the holidays with ease.
Join us on Saturday, November 8 at 10am for “Mail Merge,” a technology program to manage your mile-long holiday card list. Learn to use Microsoft Word to create mailing labels for large mailings, and if you bring your list of names and addresses to the class, you can get a head start on your mail project. For more information, click here.
Stop by the Library on Monday, November 10 at 1:30pm for “Managing Your Finances for the Holidays” to learn money-saving tips designed to help you avoid buyer’s remorse (and those looming credit card bills in January). Everyone who attends the program will also receive a money management guide titled Personal Finance Made Easy AND a “Stop. Think. Save!” shopping bag. For more info about registration and the program, click here.
And for the tech-savvy folks out there, join us on Monday, November 17 at 7pm for “Top Tech Tools to Manage Your Money.” Learn about the most popular and useful tools to help manage your money, including budgeting websites and apps to give you more bang for your buck. Participants will receive a copy of Personal Finance Made Easy. For more details about the event and registration, click here.

Next time you’re in the shower, make sure Norman Bates or his mother are nowhere to be found. Ranked number one by the American Film Institute’s 100 Years, 100 Thrills, this Alfred Hitchcock movie still stands, even after 40 years, as one of the most scary, if not scariest films of all time. Psycho is not a horror film—it is just a fast-paced thriller that thrills a little more than most Hitchcock films. Also contributing to the “horror” quality are a very memorable ending and one of the most copied, talked-about, and studied film scenes ever…the shower scene. Hitchcock took quite a few chances when making Psycho. First, his leading lady Janet Leigh is out-of-the-picture about a third into the film. Then, the director chose to shoot the film in black and white, something that was not done that often in 1960. Hitchcock also cast lesser-known actors to play other key role, especially then-unknown Anthony Perkins as Norman Bates. Those risks paid off and placed Psycho at the top of Hitchcock’s best films.
