Print without a wire at OV public library

The Oro Valley Public Library is now offering wireless printing, and it is the first library in Pima County to do so, a release said.

Library customers are able to send print jobs from a Windows laptop to a library printer. Library laptops, which can be borrowed for in-library use, will have printing capability.

A customer's personal Windows laptop can connect wirelessly to a library printer once temporary printing software is downloaded and installed.

The printing software is accessible from the library's webpage at www.orovalleyaz.gov.

Girl Scout event this Sunday in Tucson

A free event for girls and their families is being hosted this Sunday, Aug. 16, by the Sahuaro Girl Scout Council.

Giveaways, fun activities, refreshments and information on how to get involved are part of the event from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Sahuaro Girl Scout Council Resource Center, 4300 E. Broadway, Tucson.

Girl Scouting is approaching its 100th anniversary, with a new approach to what girls do in Girl Scouting, how they do it, and how they will benefit, a release said.

The new Girl Scout leadership experience model engages girls in discovering themselves, connecting with others, and taking action to make the world a better place. It begins with a definition of leadership that girls understand and believe in: a leader, girls say, is defined not only by the qualities and skills one has, but also by how those qualities and skills are used to make a difference in the world.

The new Girl Scout leadership experience identifies three "keys" to leadership:

• Discover: Girls understand themselves and their values and use their knowledge and skills to explore the world.

• Connect: Girls care about, inspire, and team with others locally and globally.

• Take action: Girls act to make the world a better place.

The Northwest has a small, vibrant Girl Scout community with girls as young as 5, Daisy Girl Scouts, to girls graduating from high school. This year, several Senior Girl Scouts earned their Gold Award, the highest honor achieved in Girl Scouting.
