Become a technology trendsetter and expand your digital world at the official opening of Sunshine Coast Council’s Beerwah Library New Technology program on Wednesday, November 19 at 10am.
Division 1 Councillor Rick Baberowski encouraged the community to join him for morning tea and a chance to ‘test drive’ new technology at the Beerwah launch.
“The Interactive Projector and Samsung Tablet Devices provide an opportunity for the public to discover how to use the latest technology which will be available for experimentation and play,” he said.
“The interactive projector is cutting edge technology that enables sharing of ideas and interaction with projected material on a large screen, great for modern learning styles and meetings.
“It offers community groups plug and play meeting room technology so they can interact with their projected material and email the changes from a whiteboard.
“The tablets will also be used by staff to demonstrate access to the eLibrary and the library service’s extensive range of online products that include eBooks, eAudio, eMagazine, music and films both in and outside the library.”
Annette Pendlebury from the Friends of Beerwah Library and Beerwah Grafx group said everyone is excited about the new equipment.
“Beerwah Library’s reputation as a Technology Trendsetter is about to go up a step with this innovative projector bringing unprecedented benefits to our local community and groups,” she said.
“Nowhere else in Beerwah is there a resource where your community group can meet, access Wi-Fi, use the latest equipment – all for free. The Library does an amazing job of enabling community groups to develop and grow and in turn support the community.”
This project was funded by and OPAL grant - a Queensland Government program available through State Library of Queensland.
