Next Meeting

Wednesday December 11th, 2019

TopicThe Ottawa Public Library in the digital age
SpeakerKyle Christopher

How can the public library help me keep on top of the latest technology trends? How do I borrow or utilize something that I can't feel or touch? How does the Ottawa Public Library keep it real for Ottawa's diverse social needs, and what role do they play in digital literacy?

Ottawa Public Library’s mission is to inspire learning, spark curiosity, and connect people. Systems Librarian Kyle Christopher will address your questions and present on how OPL works to achieve their mission by providing the community with informational resources and working to bridge the digital divide.
