Join us for this free webinar to learn how your library can help older adults learn to use new technologies. You will hear from the St. Mary’s County Library (Maryland), which is providing older adults with effective training and technology assistance. This library will share examples of successful programming, as well as tips for working with older adults. You will also learn about TechBoomers, a free website that offers technology training tutorials developed specifically for older adults.
