is ready for hacking
July 31 from 1-3 pm
“Learn about cybersecurity and digital forensics! As more and more of our information moves into the digital world, it’s increasingly important to be able to protect our important data. At this workshop, we’ll learn how investigators collect evidence, crack password security, break encryption, decipher cryptography, find hidden information in images with steganography, and recover information in deleted files. You’ll use your new skills to help solve a mysterious, unsolved case!”


August 14-16 from 2 – 4
Artists and Writers-Come join and design and publish a
black and white Zine.  The free program runs 3 days, August 14,15 and 16 from 2-4 p.m. at the Kent Memorial Library, 61 Ffyler Place.   A Zine is a self-published booklet crafted by cutting and gluing poetry, inspiration, short stories and other text and images onto sheets for photocopying and stapling. We’ll be sharing our Zine with the folks at the Jacksonville Public Library in Florida and, if we’re lucky, Skyping with the creators of NickName Zine. Please register at the library at 860-668-3896 or on the website at
