Newton Public Library's Tech Talks

Wish you could do more technology programming for your patrons? Nathan Carr, IT Supervisor of Newton Public Library, does a different topic every month and these programs are available for any library to join.

Tech Talk Classes are held every 2nd Thursday of the month at 6:30pm.  Ways to take advantage of this content:

Watch Party - add the classes to your library program calendar, and set up a space for patrons to watch the session live (projected in your conference room or a few patrons around an isolated computer). The webinar system Zoom is used, so all you need is a computer, speakers, and to click the link to join. It is the same link every month! Nathan's sessions have these elements, depending on topic:
  • Webcam - so your patrons can see he's a live human being,
  • Show powerpoint presentation or share his computer screen,
  • Answer your patron questions as they come up.
Promote an Archive - Please feel free to use archives in your patron newsletters.  Recordings are available the day after the session on this page.

Email Nathan to request more information, and get on his list for a day-of reminder with the session link & powerpoint slides. Test sessions for joining a Zoom webinar are available.
