Meet Your Community: Library Videos: Videos created by each library. Rules of the game: regardless of the video topic, every staff member must be featured within the 2-3 minute production.

Convenience for the Community: 24/7 Digital Library Service: Paula Roman of RB Digital provides training on the combined platform including the newest services: Transparent Languages and Universal Class.

Strong Communities Use Technology: The community depends on us to know about the latest and greatest, even the technology we don’t own or use ourselves. Increase your technology comfort level through hands-on experiences with the STEAM petting zoo from West Florida Public Library. Network and play, explore what interests you, draw on the expertise of WFPL’s STEAM Team. RB Digital will be available for hands-on demonstrations and the questions you still want to ask.

Registration is closed for this event.
