Veröffentlicht am

This session focuses on unique innovative technologies that are readily available on the market and rolling out in the future. Engage the next generation of users by allowing these technologies to position your library as a community anchor that can provide homework assistance, social growth, and exploration of reading. Get a sense and feel for new age technology and feel confident that you can bring these new gadgets into your community to increase circulation, patron usage, or offer more programs. Through this, you will allow your patrons to learn through discovery, interaction, and collaboration and turn them into permanent library users.
