Tech Talk

Still trying to figure out that new iPad, Kindle, or Nook you got for Christmas this year (or last year?)  Join us for Tech Talk, a new informal discussion group meeting at 2 pm, Wednesday, February 18th, at the Paxton Carnegie Library. Bring in a device, and we’ll exchange ideas.  You will also have a chance to review how to download ebooks and audiobooks from Media Mall and 3M, using your library barcode.  There is no charge for the program; we’ll just all get together to learn.  Anyone who is already tech-savvy is invited too. Please join us and share your expertise!
