The Moose Jaw Public Library (MJPL) is making technology more accessible.
As part of its ongoing attempt to teach people how to make the most of their devices, the MJPL is hosting a two-part session on the iPad.
“The thing with tablets and iPads is that they are very popular and promoted as being super accessible and easy to use,” said Hannah Elich, a spokesperson for the library. “But they’re not actually very easy to use.”
The sessions are being delivered by September Brooke, an employee with the Davidson library who is “very knowledgeable” about iPads, Elich said.
The library has hosted similar programs for e-readers and other devices in the past.
Elich said, due to the expertise the MJPL has available, it is ideally suited to the task of helping people with their technology.
“We do a lot of technology programs because we know the demand is high,” she said. “And it’s something we have gotten very lucky at, because we have the people with the expertise (to make it work).”
There are two sessions on iPad Basics, held in two parts.
The afternoon sessions are fully booked, according to Elich, while the evening sessions running at 7 p.m. on March 5 and 12 are still open. To register, visit moosejawlibrary.ca or call at (306) 692-2787.
