Library Launches Tech Fridays

We’re excited to announce a new monthly program called Tech Fridays.  Would you like to use one of our electronic databases or download an eBook but feel stymied by the learning curve involved?  Do you want to learn about social media tools or how to find apps for your phone or tablet?  Then Tech Fridays are for you.  Each month we’ll highlight a 21st century tool offered by the Library, or one readily available online, with the goal of helping our patrons become empowered users of these resources.

The first of our Tech Fridays will take place on October 26th.  Drop in anytime between 2 and 4 PM when staff members will demonstrate and answer your questions about OverDrive, the library’s downloadable eBook and audiobook service.   On November 30th, Reference Librarian Christie Mitchell will focus on tools and websites related to personal finance.  After a break for the holidays, Tech Fridays will be held from 2 to 4 PM on the fourth Friday of each month.  Future programs will include How to Do Research, Technology for Seniors, Social Media, and Teens Teach Tech.  If you have a technology topic you’d like us to cover, contact Adult Services Librarian Dorothy Pawlowski with your suggestions.
