MITCHELL Outlook Par
Tuesday, Aug. 14, 9:30 - 11:30 AM

Outlook Tasks give you the ability to keep track of the things you need to do and schedule reminders for them. You can include a start date, due date, reminder date, and priority for your tasks.  You can assign tasks to others and send a status report update on tasks that have been assigned to you.
Outlook Notes can be thought of as the electronic version of sticky notes.  Use notes to keep track of important information and to organize your work.
They can be grouped into categories and colored to make them easy to find.

Join us for an enlightening discussion of High Noon: The Hollywood Blacklist and the Making of an American Classic by Glenn Frankel. Who knew that there is much more significance to the revered, award-winning movie High Noon than we imagined!  Because this Western was made during the height of the Hollywood blacklist, it served as a sort of allegory for the swirl of controversy, courage, and tension surrounding its screenwriter and others involved with the film. 

Any adult is invited to attend and refreshments will be served.  For questions, contact Jackie Greene, Reference Librarian, at 936.442.7728, ext. 6314 or at jgreene@countylibrary.org
