Ask the Blue Shirt Experts about new tech at Oakville Public Library’s new interactive digital series

June 2, 2017

Last month, Oakville Public Library (OPL) introduced a new digital program in partnership with Best Buy Burlington. The new drop-in series, Ask the Blue Shirt Expert, invites customers of all ages to get hands-on and explore the latest trends in technology with top-selling items from Best Buy.

Customers have the chance to talk with tech experts from the big-box store, ask questions about technology, get one-on-one interactive tutorials, and test out high-tech gadgets.

OPL launched on May 2 with wearable technology. At the session, the Blue Shirt experts introduced three trending smart watches, including the Martian Smartwatch, the ASUS ZenWatch, and the widely popular Apple Watch.

After the experts demonstrated each watch, customers were able to wear and “test-drive” the devices, allowing them to see how they could use it in their everyday lives.

The series will continue to run on the first Tuesday of each month.

At the June 6 Ask the Blue Shirt Expert session, the experts will present Best Buy’s best-selling drones. At this session, customers will learn all about drone technology and how they are used in various industries.

Upcoming topics for the Ask the Blue Shirt expert program include DSLRs and Go Pros, today’s newest toys, and gaming.

Oakville Public Library is excited to collaborate with Best Buy in educating the community on the uses of new technology, adding to OPL’s already robust digital portfolio.
