Technology Fair a Crowd Pleaser!

A crowd of 45+ techno-lusting individuals attended the library’s first ever technology fair on Saturday, March 21. All of the attendees that signed in were entered to win a free MP3 player. The lucky winner also learned about the library’s free download service, her new MP3 player will help her enjoy plenty of free audiobooks and music using this popular library service!

Learn more about the download service by visiting the library’s web site or by speaking with a library staff member.

A variety of technologies related to business, entertainment, personal computers and home networks were showcased. The library contributed a “technology sandbox” table where people tried using the new Amazon Kindle 2, Nintendo Wii, an iPod Touch and our free download service. More great gadgets on loan from the Southeastern Massachusetts Library System were also on display.

A special thank you goes out to Valerie Becker – West Tisbury School, Travis Larsen – Information Technology Manager for the Town of Oak Bluffs, Maury de Geofroy – Educomp Representative and Rich Hammond – Hammond and Associates for sharing their time and expertise at the fair.
