You're not the kind of person to go out and spend money on the latest thing until you're sure it's right for you. But how do you get your hands on a Kindle before you buy one? How do you test drive an iPad if the store can't keep them in stock?
Come to a "Library Technology Sandbox." We'll have e-readers like the Nook and the Kindle, tablet computers, iPads, MP3 players, and iPods for you to test drive and play with at the library.
Our series of "Technology Sandbox" workshops will include an opportunity for patrons to try out these new products. The library’s professional staff and technicians from Best Buy will conduct the workshops scheduled from Nov. 1 to Nov. 19. They are free and open to the public.
If you already have have an e-reader, a laptop, a smartphone or a mobile device, bring it to a "Sandbox" and we'll show you how to download library materials for free.
"Sandboxes" will be held in the Stratford Library's Lovell room and are scheduled for:
- Tue., Nov. 1, 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
- Mon., Nov. 7, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m.
