iPad Club

The iPad club will hold it's first fall meeting Thursday, September 25 at 3pm.  Bring your fully-charged iPad, your library card and any library-related questions you may have about iPads.  This is a collaborative sharing session where iPad users gather to trade tips and ideas that have been helpful in learning to use the device. (this is not a technical instruction session)  Join this drop-in group and enjoy a cup of tea and learn something new about your iPad.

 

LIBRARY-AT-YOUR-DOOR

This volunteer group has been active at the Summerland Library since 1999.  Volunteers bring library materials to those that are homebound and cannot get into the library.  If you are interested in joining this group of dedicated volunteers please ask at the circulation desk.
