What's a Flash Drive?

Come to the library on September 5th and find out what a flash drive is, what it does and just how to use it.  It may also be known as a jump drive, memory stick, or a usb drive.  At 3 pm, in our meeting room we will have a computer class to tell you just how to use it.  Trying to send an attachment from your e-mail to someone else but need to make changes first?  This class will tell you all about that.
