The May meeting of the Library Board of Trustees will be held at 7PM on Wednesday, May  28, in the library community room.  These meetings are open to the public.

 We are offering iPad classes tailored to Seniors!  As part of the Ballston Senior Connection, the Library will be hosting classes for seniors to become more comfortable with technology – specifically iPads.  We will provide the iPads for the classes, so no need to already own one!  If you are  interested in the classes, please contact the library at 399-8174! Note: You do not have to be a senior to participate in these classes and you can sign up online through our calendar.

Senior Connection iPad INTRO Class
Start using the iPad right away! This hands-on class will teach everything you need to know to get started on the iPad-what it is, why it’s great, and how it works. Learn the terms, tricks, and tips you need, and walk away with ideas for all the great ways you can use the iPad in your day-to-day life.

This class serves as an introduction to the iPad class as part of the Ballston Senior Connection Grant Program to help Seniors learn to use technology. Some experience with i-Pad use or attendance at this class is needed in order to get the most out of the other classes.
Funded by a grant from the Southern Adirondack Library System

There will also be topic based classes offered after the Intro classes.  Topics will include email and Facebook; using the iPad for news, weather, and maps; daily use items, such as finding recipes, tracking medications; entertainment apps; online shopping safety; and taking, organizing and saving pictures on the iPad.  Topic classes are independent and you can sign up to attend as many or as few as you would like!
