State Library, local libraries offering “Gadget Menagerie” training
The Washington State Library is partnering with local libraries across the state providing “Gadget Menagerie” training on handheld devices for library staff. Library patrons and students will be provided similar training focused on the needs of the device user. About 40 locations and 70 sessions are scheduled for the Gadget Menagerie through July.
“This is another great example of the Washington State Library and our excellent local libraries providing helpful ‘real-world’ training to folks,” said Secretary of State Kim Wyman. “It’s a brave new world of technology, fun and helpful and scary to people who haven’t used all of these devices.” “We are very excited to be able to provide this training,” said State Librarian Rand Simmons. “These skills will benefit both library staff and those who wish to use the devices to access a whole array of useful library resources.”
