Quad Cities, IL/IA: The RiverShare Libraries consortium of the Quad Cities area will start a new cooperative program series this winter to help patrons who are shopping for new tablets or who have questions about the ones they have. The Gadgets and Gizmos Fair will be offered at four different RiverShare member libraries in December and January.
Gadgets and Gizmos fairs will be offered:
- Thursday, December 11, 2:30-4:30 pm at the Moline Public Library Gold Room, 3210 41st Street, Moline, IL.
- Monday, December 29, 6:00-7:30 pm at the River Valley District Library, 214 S. Main Street, Port Byron, IL
- Tuesday, January 6, 3:00-6:00 pm at the Scott County Community Library-Eldridge Branch, 200 N.6th Avenue, Eldridge, IA
- Saturday, January 24, 11:00 am - 1:00 pm at the LeClaire Community Library, 323 Wisconsin St. LeClaire, IA
Staff from participating libraries will answer questions and provide help on tablet devices, such as iPads, Android tablets, Amazon Kindles, and Barnes & Noble Nooks. Participants may bring their devices to get one-on-one assistance in learning their device or with answering questions. Whether you've had your device for a while, just received one, or want to see what they're all about, the fairs are a no-pressure, no sales way to learn more.
