Tuesdays are high tech at library [UPDATED]

How often do you find yourself saying something like, “I just can’t keep up!” when it comes to learning

about new technology applications or tools? Once a day, twice a day, some uncountable number each day?

At the Fergus Falls Public Library, we understand your tech anxiety, which is why we’re proud to announce our new slate of “Lifestyle Tech” classes and Tech Forum discussions.

Earlier this month, we kicked off the Tech Forum with a look at the popular social networking site, Facebook.

The library-sponsored, community-led Tech Forum will meet the first Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. and is designed to be an informal discussion and sharing session.

Each month the Forum will cover a new topic. The Tech Forum is open to the public and all skill and ability levels are welcome to attend.

The next Forum meeting is April 3, and the topic is “smart phones.” For more information on the Tech Forum, visit the Forum’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/FFTechTuesday or join

the group on MeetUp (http://www.meetup.com/).

The library’s Lifestyle Tech classes will also be held on Tuesdays.

The Tech classes are designed for various skill levels and will provide hands-on learning opportunities covering a variety of tech-related applications and tools.

For example, have you heard of Pinterest, the hot, new online organizational tool, but just haven’t taken the time to learn how Pinterest might fit your lifestyle? Then, why not plan

to attend our Pinterest 101 class on March 27 at 6 p.m.?

Library staff will help you learn how to organize all the cool stuff you find online using Pinterest’s digital bulletin board concept.

Watch for more information on upcoming Lifestyle Tech classes, including an eReader and Tablet Computer Forum on April 16, by connecting with us on Facebook at www.facebook.com/fergusfallspubliclibrary, on our website at www.fergusfalls.lib.mn.us, or in-person at the library.

 

Erin Smith is the director of the Fergus Falls Public Library.
