Tech Tuesdays @ Crowell: October 9
Technology Fair -- 9:30-11:00 a.m.
with gizmo guru Stewart Rogers from Alice Computers
Facebook 101 -- 7:00 p.m.
with reference librarian & author Irene McDermott
Tuesday October 9
Seniors and technology-challenged adults of all ages are welcome to come browse the many new-fangled devices on the scene. What do they do? Do I really need one? Which one is right for my needs? How do you work the thing? Beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Barth Community, STEWART ROGERS from Alice Computers will demonstrate a variety of the latest devices, such as the iPad, netbook, and various tablet computers. Attendees will be encouraged to touch and try those new thin laptops and tablets and even see the internet delivered over the television. Stewart will be available to answer questions during this touch and explore session: a technology petting zoo of sorts!
Then at 7:00 in the evening, reference librarian and acclaimed author IRENE McDERMOTT will explain the ins and outs of Facebook and why this is an excellent way to keep up with the grandkids or those college students. She’ll demonstrate how to get started on the website that unites families across the miles and generations. She’ll show how to find friends, play games and even upload photos from your phone. Facebook is a great way to keep in touch with old friends and to find new ones.
Bring all your questions to this fun, judgment-free environment where you can learn and play.
The more the merrier! Share this event on Facebook & Twitter.
