From the Digital Lab
An update and what's to come in the Digital Lab at TCPL.
Hello, my name is Tom Fredette, and I am the Digital Lab Librarian with Tompkins County Public Library. The goal of TCPL’s digital lab is to provide workshops that will help our patrons with both their digital and personal growth. Whether this growth is educational or career oriented, or more recreational and hobbyist in nature, the library intends to provide workshops that will appeal to a variety of patron interests and encourage the pursuit of lifelong learning.
So far in 2018 we have already provided workshops covering SAT/ACT test preparation for teens, podcasting, genealogy resources, career skills, and a civics short course for becoming a U.S. citizen. In addition, we will be offering open lab hours on Wednesdays and Thursdays during the summer. Visit our events calendar for more details about our open lab hours. Because the digital lab is still new, and we are in the beginning stages of what we hope to accomplish in this space, we would like to invite both patrons and community organizations alike to participate in a brief survey that we feel will help us determine the types of workshops to offer in the future. When you have a moment, please feel free to complete this survey and share your thoughts: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/S8CYMMC. Thank you for your continued support of the Tompkins County Public Library. We are looking forward to many exciting experiences in our new digital lab in the months to come.
