Oakville Public Library gears up for 2017 with new technology programming

January 27, 2017

In the coming weeks, the Oakville Public Library will open registration for TechTalk – a new series of valuable technology programs that library cardholders can take advantage of. With planned workshops and information sessions scheduled throughout the year, the Oakville community will have the opportunity to brush up on computer skills, create 3D prints, and learn about new trends in technology.

The TechTalk Series will feature lectures and workshops with topics on website design, smart home devices and wearable technology, as well as tutorials for Microsoft Office and – one of the library’s newest additions – Lynda.com. The TechTalk sessions are open to all levels of expertise, and are either free of charge or have a minimal admission fee.

For customers who are interested in one-on-one coaching, the library will continue its Book a Tech Coach and Digital Discovery with the Teen Tech Team programs. Aimed specifically at beginners, these programs will help you get started with your computer or tablet, learn how to download eBooks, and grasp the basics of social media.

Teens and children can also explore cutting-edge technology with workshops on 3D printing and design, coding with Ozobots and Lego Robotics, and film-making and animation for beginners.

Registration for registered programs will open February 11, 2017.
