The Main Library, 1786 Burlington Pike in Burlington, hosted a series of Digital

Learn how to take better photos and use the advanced controls of your camera through this hands-on digital photography series. Sign up for one class or the whole series, based on what you want to learn.
Jeff Snyder, a local photographer, who specializes in nature and wildlife, will teach the series.
