On Saturday, November 17, at 11 am, come to the Troy Library for the opening of the Library's Youth Services DepartmentTech Farm. The Tech Farm is filled with child-sized, age-appropriate (birth to five years) laptop computers, tablets, and smartphones, complete with educational software and games. These devices will help young people in Troy gain the multimedia literacy they will need to be successful upon entering school.
In addition to the Tech Farm, the Library will unveil its new Peek-a-Book. This touch screen kiosk will allow children to view booktalks promoting picture books in the Library’s collection.
The morning will also feature entertainment, a craft for children, and light refreshments. Everyone is invited.
These are just some of the changes happening at the Troy Library to attract a new generation of Library users. The Tech Farm and the Peek-a-Book were made possible by a generous grant from the Friends of the Troy Public Library. Visit the Friends at friendstpl.org.
For more information, contact Meaghan Battle, head of the Library’s Youth Service’s Department, at 248.524.3543 or M.Battle@troymi.gov.
