Philly Tech Week Is Back at the Hot Spots!

By Harry F. Thu, April 28, 2016

We are excited to announce that each of our three Hot Spot locations will offer digital-literacy workshops during Philly Tech Week (PTW), April 29 – May 7. These workshops will delve into storing your data in the cloud and tools and tips for online job searches. We will also offer an extension of the Library’s popular E-gadget Help Desk, where attendees can bring their own devices and receive one-on-one assistance with any questions or problems they may have. The Hot Spots staff wants you to get the most out of your gadget! They work with countless types of electronics, both new and old, so nothing is off the table.

These workshops are first come, first served, and space is limited.
