CKCS Tech Night - Monday - July 13 at 7 pm

by Julie Scalos via Zoom from Lexington Public Library


Julie Scalos

We are all missing our beloved public libraries during this Covid-19 pandemic, but a lot of materials are available online. You just have to know how to access them. Julie Scalos, from the Lexington Public library will discuss what is available and show us how to access a plethora of resources to keep us busy for the summer into the fall.

Many people still do not understand how to download ebooks and audio books, so part of her presentation will demonstrate how to do this. But there are more resources in addition to these, magazines, podcasts, Lynda.com are a few things, as well as, new online programs through August 15 for adults, children and families.

Join us to see what's available and new at the Lexington Public Library. Invite your friends to Zoom with us. You can get the Zoom link from the weekly email "What's happening next week at your computer society". Look for it on the Thursday night before the event. If you are not receiving the weekly email, sign up for it on the Website under the tab -CKCS Weekly. You do not have to be a member to attend Tech Night.

If you do not have Zoom on your computer, an easy and safe way to get it is to go to https://Ninite.com and select Zoom to be installed on your PC or Mac. Zoom is on the top row of apps you can install.



Kroger Community Rewards Program

To all CKCS Members and Friends:

We appreciate your participation in the Kroger Community Rewards program. The donations from Kroger have enabled several improvements in our organization without dues increases.

If you are not participating in Community Rewards, you can sign up to have Kroger donate a portion of every purchase you make to CKCS.

Steps to create your Kroger account:

  1. Go to the Kroger website at https://www.kroger.com
  2. Put the mouse on Savings and Rewards to see the options
  3. Click on Kroger Community Rewards
  4. Scroll down until you see "I'm a Customer"
  5. Click on "View Details" to go to the Sign In screen
  6. Next, click on Create an Account
  7. Fill in the requested information (see note 1 and 2 below)
  8. Near the bottom of the screen click on Create Account

Note 1: You can go to most any email service website and create a new email address just for your Kroger account. Kroger will send you emails frequently and will offer the opportunity for receiving a lot of emails with coupons, etc.

Note 2: Not your email password, but create a new password just for Kroger.

You can do this anytime during the year, but right now is best for CKCS.

New CKCS members and non-members can participate in this program. Shortly after you enroll, you will see a message on your Kroger purchase receipts, indicating that Kroger has made a donation to CKCS for you. The size of the gift is proportional to the amount of your purchase.

Thank you for participating in Kroger Community Rewards and helping CKCS!


Disk Erasing Service

CKCS is now offering a service to erase your older disk drive so you can feel confident that no personal information is left on it before you give it away or dispose of it.

Bring your computer or just the disk drive to CKCS to get it erased and returned to you or donated to charity. Erasing is usually done on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday mornings between 10 AM and 1 PM or at the Dr Fixit Special Interest Group which usually meets on the first Saturday of every month between 10 AM and noon. There is no charge but a small donation would be appreciated.
