New technology

Dozens of staff members from public libraries across Erie County met at Ritter Friday, Aug. 28 for a day of training.iris One session focused on emerging technology, including wearables such as smart watches and fitness trackers. Staff also tried out the newest smart devices that connect your household systems to give you control over lights, locks, temperature and more, no matter where you are.

In another session, staff learned about great sites that help you stay on top of new and coming titles that are bound to be popular, such as LibraryReads.org, where librarians list the top ten titles of the month.
