Wichita Public Library provides the latest technology to educate and engage community members in becoming responsible digital citizens. To highlight all the Library has to offer, residents can join staff at Tech Day at the Library from 10:30 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, October 8 at the Advanced Learning Library, 711 W. 2nd St.
This free program will give residents a hands-on approach to different technology and equipment available at the Library, including: wireless hotspots, internet bundles, VR device, 3D printers, digital tablets, iMac computers and specialized PCs for audio and video production.
Residents will also learn about the AV Studio, which provides the full Adobe Creative Suite, microphones, audio recording equipment, cameras and more. Designed for individuals and small groups, this free-to-use audiovisual recording and editing space can be reserved for personal or professional use.
“Learning how to use technology is an important skill to have because it helps residents stay current on trends, and also helps them complete tasks that are becoming more and more dependent on the use of computers, smart phones, tablets and other devices,” said Jaime Prothro, Director of Libraries.
In addition to various technology equipment, the Library also hosts free technology classes residents can sign up for to learn how to use Microsoft Word, download e-books, sell things online, and more.
