Your Guelph Public Library (GPL) is here to help and support you as you learn, play, collaborate, and create great ideas with new technologies! The GPL is launching its new Tech B@r on Friday, May 29th at the Main Library (100 Norfolk Street).

The #GPLTechB@r will feature:

  • a Makerbot Replicator 3D Printer
  • a Makerbot Digitizer 3D Scanner
  • an iMAC desktop computer
  • a Windows 8 computer
  • iPads
  • Chromebooks
  • Windows Surface Tablets
  • Kobo eReaders
  • Makey Makey circuitry invention kits

Tech B@r devices will be available to all library customers for use within the main library during regular hours. The #GPLTechB@r will be also offering technology demonstrations and assistance, creative circuitry activities for kids, beginner Python coding projects, and guidance to help your design and print your own 3D objects!

If you are new to a device and anticipate requiring assistance, GPL recommends you visit the main library between the hours of 9am and 5pm Monday through Friday for convenient walk up tech support! Stop by the main library, chat with friendly library staff, and find out more about the exciting possibilities of maker technology!
