C@P Youth Interns coming to a branch near you!

There will be C@P Youth Interns in our branches again this summer, although their start date is yet to be confirmed. 

By summer, they will be ready to help you with all of your basic computer needs.  You can bring in your own laptop, tablet, eReader, or smartphone or use our computers for some assistance during a one hour one-on-one session.  Learn to download eBooks and audiobooks, get an email account, learn to use social media tools like Pinterest and Twitter, see a 3D printer demonstration, or bring your tablet to our Tablets for Beginners session.  Looking to purchase a tablet, but aren’t sure which one you might like?  Join one of our Test Drive a Tablet time slots and try out one of our eight different varieties for some hands-on experience. 

For the younger crowd, we will be offering an assortment of workshops that are sure to grab your attention.  Go on a Digital Photo Scavenger Hunt, try Geocaching for Kids, Bring Books to Life: create a book trailer, make a LEGO Stop Motion Flick, explore in our Makerlab, be creative with Game Maker, while learning to make your own video game, and build with the LEGO Mindstorm Robotics kits.  These sessions will require pre-registration so watch our Calendar of Events for your chance to participate.

For the adult one-on-one technology tutorial sessions you can get your name on our call list now.  We’ll call you when we are ready to begin scheduling these sessions.   Take advantage of this great service before the end of the summer, because after that it will be too late as these great youth will have gone back to school.

Oh, I forgot to mention that all of this is available for FREE!

Charlotte Janes,
Head of Systems and Administration
