D202 - Gizmo Garage: Closing the Digital Divide One Device at a Time

11:30 a.m. - 12:15 p.m.
Jezmynne Dene, Director, Portneuf District Library

The Gizmo Garage, a partnership program with the Idaho Commission for Libraries, offers e-readers and tablets to libraries for staff and library user training. The Gizmo Garage belongs to a regional area and is circulated among libraries for events. The Portneuf Library’s events are very popular, leading to more classes and one-on-one sessions to help users learn to use their devices and connect to digital materials. Dene discusses successful staff training concepts and shares different methods for teaching library users. Come hear about the successes of this program and learn how you can build a team to create your own Gizmo Garage!
