 Webinar Description 

Have you thought about taking technology training out of the library and into the community? View our recorded webinar to find out how the Poudre River Public Library District in Colorado created "Tech-a-la-Carte" to do just that.

Irene Romsa, manager of the Outreach Department for the Poudre River Public Library District, provides an insider's tour of Tech-a-la-Carte. With this small mobile computer lab, the library is taking technology training into the community. The lab provides the library with the flexibility to respond to the particular needs (content, location, time, and day) of specific groups.

This webinar is part of a series of webinars exploring the Edge Initiative Benchmarks. This webinar is based on Benchmark 5, which includes the attribute, "The library engages in technology outreach activities by maintaining mobile training equipment for library-sponsored technology training in partner facilities."
