Join us at this two hour workshop and explore how to get the most from your iPad, Kindle Fire or Android tablet.

Al Fasoldt, technology writer for The Post-Standard, and his wife, Nancy, who teaches readers how to enjoy the ePost-Standard, will demystify your iPad and Android tablets with a no-nonsense introduction. They’ll show how to use your tablet, where to find applications (called apps), how to share photos and videos and much more.The first hour will focus on iPads and the second will focus on Androids.

The first hour will focus on iPads and the second hour will focus on Androids – but you won’t want to miss a minute of this ongoing tablet conversation!

Registration is highly recommended! Seating is limited and only registered persons will be guaranteed a seat.

Summer Reading Program

June kicks off the 2014 Summer Reading Programs! This year’s children’s theme is “Fizz, Boom, Read”, which mixes science with summer reading. The Teen Reading program, SPARK, is made up of list of activities, that when completed, earn readers badges that can later be traded in for prizes.

There are a variety of activities for all ages at each NOPL location. Take a look at our events calendar to review and register for upcoming events. Summer Reading Programs run late June to early August with many programs requiring registration. If you sign up online for an event you will receive an e-mail reminder one day in advance in your email inbox. Please let us know as early as possible if you cannot attend an event so we may let those on the waiting list fill your spot.
