  THEOSOPHICAL WEB SEARCH                 

The Wheaton-Olcott Lodge has produced a computer program called Theosophical Web Search (TWS) that runs on Microsoft Windows. TWS is a handy program that uses Google to search selected Theosophical web sites and books. This beta software:  

  • Assists you in searching the content of specific theosophical websites.
  • Maintains a history of the words or phrases used in the last 25 searches so that they do not need to be retyped if a previous search needs to be repeated.
  • Allows you to create a list of bookmarks so that important or frequently visited web pages can be recalled without searching. Bookmarks are also useful in keeping track of interesting webpages that may you find along the way but want to read later.
  • Assists you in creating internet references and bibliographies by allowing you to quickly copy the URL of the current web page to the Windows clipboard with the click of a button.
  • Defaults to a fixed set of theosophical web sites, an empty set of bookmarks and an empty search history. This can be personalized, since the entries in the TWS site list can be edited, added or removed as necessary.

  "Fostering the Divine Spark in Our Children"

In this interactive parenting session, Elisabeth & Brian Hornich will explore how to find creative ways to accent the spiritual in our daily lives, helping ourselves and our children to radiate our innate and true, divine nature. Children are invited to attend story time in the Children's Corner of the library while parents attend this program. 


    Recommended Title   

This month we recommend the latest literary exploration by our past President, Dr. John Algeo. You will enjoy reading "Theosophy, Fantasy, and Mary Poppins" as a colorful page-flipping e-book published by the online journal Theosophy Forward.
