'GO Center' offers student guidance

Rachel Willis- Daily Record Staff

The San Marcos Public Library hosts an event every week for San Marcos residents to create and improve resumes, cover letters, learn about online job searches and application processes as well as the intricacies of financial aid.

The program is called the “GO Center” and is an enterprise of Texas State University’s P-16 Initiative’s G-Force mentoring program. The program takes place at five local high schools and the library.

Kids take on 3D printing

Children ages 7 to 12 are invited to the library for "Maker Play." This reoccurring children's activity from the Texas State University MAKE Lab is focused on exploring technology and bringing imagination to life with hands-on projects. Participants will learn about 3D printing and 2D computer fabrication, and try their hands at 3D computer-aided modeling, coding and simple electronics. The event is free, but registration is required. You can register by phone at 512-393-8200 or online at registration.

The fence has been up for almost a year now, barring most public access to the swimming hole just below Spring Lake Dam.

While no work has yet been done to repair the right-side spillway and erosion on the left, that doesn’t mean the project isn’t getting attention, according to Matt Flores, spokesman for Texas State University, owner of the dam.
