Talk techie to me tomorrow at the Louisville Free Public Library’s Technology Boot Camp launch

I’ve loved the Louisville Free Public Library since my mom took me to the Shively branch every week as a kid. Checking out books gave me my first taste of responsibility (I was deathly afraid of losing one of the Sweet Valley High editions) and fostered a love of reading.

I have the opportunity to give back to our city’s library system at the launch of the Technology Boot Camp tomorrow at the main library location on York Street.

The Technology Boot Camp is a free six-week program designed to help people discover and strengthen their online skills. Here’s a blurb from the library:

Technology Boot Camp is a self-guided program. Participants access the Technology Boot Camp website from a computer with Internet connection at home, work, or any Library location. Each week the website will feature a different topic: blogging, cloud computing, social media, photo sharing, and more. Easy-to-understand explanations build knowledge and fun hands-on exercises apply new skills. A series of classes at library branches will offer extra help, if needed.

At the Technology Boot Camp launch, I will be among fellow local bloggers discussing why we blog and how others can join in on the fun. I speak at 10:30 a.m., so bring your coffee and join me. You will also have a chance to play with some gadgets and register for the boot camp. Fun Saturday ahead? I believe so.
