Learn about the library’s tech studios, first Fridays, mob events, iPads in the library, and much more. The State of Maine taxpayers check off a donation to public libraries on their income tax forms. Hear how they used celebrity endorsements and encouraged donations. Learn how one academic library goes beyond information literacy and creates unique programming of tech literacy to reach its community by teaching users the latest trends in free mobile apps, productivity tools, the cloud, and more. Listen to how the CPL is using the internationally recognized Coder Dojo model, a dynamic forum for developing computer coding skills that lay the foundation for web app and game design. Learn more about its small hub of engaged youth and mentors who are excited by the possibilities of their new and developing skills. See the platform developed by PCLS for meaningful online engagement that encourages the community to explore services, collections in an environment focused on discovery, sharing, and progress-tracking using badges, leaderboards, and more.
