Calling all techies!  

Do you have a technology tool you use that can help make library work much easier; a technology program or service that draws adults, teens or children into your doors, or a cool application you found or created for library use? If so, think about sharing with your library colleagues at Technology Day in September! We are looking for presenters who can share gadgets, emerging trends, apps, innovative tools, social media, coding, e-content, privacy, makerspaces, Google services, and how to teach tech to patrons. Program sessions are for one (1) hour: 45 minutes for presentation + 15 minutes for attendees' questions. You can do one yourself or bring together a team. You can pick September 14 at Franklin Public Library (Milwaukee County) or September 22 at Fond du Lac Public Library (Fond du Lac County) or both! Presenters will be given mileage reimbursement and lunch. Click on the link below and tell us what you'd like to show and share:
