At the end of January, the Winslow Public Library will be offering a “Technology Petting Zoo” to patrons. E-books and tablets are growing in popularity and devices are widely available with many different types from which to choose. For the purpose of providing hands-on familiarization and training with e-readers and tablets, the Maine State Library created a “Technology Petting Zoo” of devices.
The Winslow Public Library will have the devices from January 23 through January 30. Each day Samantha Cote, Youth Services/Technology Librarian, will be offering drop-in tech help from 1:30-2:30 PM. On January 30, Jared Leadbetter from the Maine State Library will be coming at 2:30 PM. to give an overview of all the devices. Devices include Google Nexus 7 and Apple iPad mini tablets, Nook SimpleTouch (e-reader), Nook HD+ (tablet), Kindle Fire (tablet), and Kindle PaperWhite (e-reader). We have limited devices, so registration is suggested. Drop-ins will also be welcome. Please call the Library to register or for more information, (207) 872-1978.
