A second new LITA webinar focused on Youth Programs:
After Hours: Circulating Technology to Improve Kids’ Access
Tuesday May 27, 2015
1:00 pm – 2:00 pm Central Time
Register now for this webinar
For years libraries have been providing access and training to
technology through their services and programs. Kids can learn to code,
build a robot, and make a movie with an iPad at the library. But what
can they do when they get home? How can libraries expand their reach to
help more than just the youth they see every day? The Meridian Library
(ID) <http://www.mld.org/> has chosen to start circulating new types of
technology. Want to learn about Arduinos? Check one out from our
library! What is a Raspberry Pi? You get 4 weeks to figure it out.
Robots too expensive to buy? Too many iPad apps to choose from? Test
it from your library first. Join Megan Egbert to discover benefits,
opportunities and best practices.
