Get Connected: Everyday Electronics

Does technology challenge your sanity?  Do there seem to be more new gadgets than you could ever get your head around? If your answer is “YES!”, you’re not alone! Your library staff and volunteers feel your pain. And, we’re here to help. 
Join us for this free public event on 14 April 2012.  The Armstrong County Library Collaboration and Lenape Technical School will host a public event to demystify technology. Get Connected: Everyday Electronics will provide various sessions on technology-related topics from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the technical school.

Sessions will include information on gadgets (like e-readers, smart phones and GPS) and online programs/services (like Facebook, Skype and Twitter). 

For more information, contact your local public library (Apollo, Ford City, Kittanning or Worthington).
