Since you can’t get rid of the apps that came with your tablet– the ones Apple or Google stuck there, like Mail, Calendar and Photos– you might as well make the best of it.  We’ll let you in on the secrets of those built-in apps and even show you how you can get around their limitations.  First hour:  iPad and iPhone.  Second hour:  Android tablets and phones.  Join Al Fasoldt and his wife, Nancy, at this two hour workshop.  Al is the technology writer for The Post-Standard and Nancy teaches readers how to enjoy the ePost-Standard.

Registration is required, space is limited.

Two classes available:

Tuesday, October 14th 11am-1pm NOPL at Brewerton 

Wednesday, October 29th 2-4pm at NOPL at Cicero

NOPL @ Cicero is participating in the  Imagination Foundation’s 2014 Global Cardboard Challenge. We invite kids, teens, and families to participate by constructing carnival or arcade games made of cardboard. A Maker Club prep session will be held on Thursday, October 2 in order to work on the games, but we encourage you to get a head start on them at home. The creations will then be featured at our Cardboard Carnival on Saturday, October 4 from 1-4 pm.
