Li­brary lessons for your new gad­get or gizmo

Wiarton Echo - - NEWS -

ur hol­i­day dec­o­ra­tions have been away yet the Christ­mas lights are now win­ter lights while the days are rel­a­tively short and nights very dark. We have been en­joy­ing the sun­shine as it does cre­ate warmth through the win­dows. Even the so­lar pow­ered yard lights have been turn­ing on be­cause there was enough sun­light to recharge those bat­ter­ies. We have had some melt­ing in the sun­shine caus­ing the roofs to clear yet not enough to do real dam­age to the ski trails. The steady freez­ing at night makes sure we have enough snow for our win­ter fun.

If you did get some new elec­tronic com­mu­ni­ca­tion gad­gets for Christ­mas, one of our W.I. mem­bers dis­cov­ered you can get help lo­cally to learn how to use them. Con­tact your lo­cal li­brary! Set up an ap­point­ment. Bring in your de­vice and you will get a les­son on how to use it. The way it works, she will help any­body get started on al­most any de­vice – Ap­ple, An­droid, Mi­crosoft and all ver­sions. The thing is, you bring your de­vice, com­puter, tablet, phone and she sits next to you and shows you things at your own pace. It is a re­laxed and per­fect way to learn.

Have fun and start the New Year right!
