Spring is in full swing and we wanted to let you all know about the upcoming Tech Talk. First thing to note is a quick change in date. We normally meet on the third Thursday, but this time we will be meeting on the May 24th at 10AM at the MCLD Admin Offices (Address below). Our speaker will be Martha Baden from Prescott Public Library and she will be presenting on their assistive technology program called “You Too!” which uses technology to improve access for those with vision or hearing disabilities.

As always we will have a discussion afterward about the presentation and also any general tech talk!

For some background on “You Too”:


Oh and we’ll have snacks!

We hope to see you there.
