McHenry Public Library plans TechFest 2013

McHENRY – The McHenry Public Library, 809 N. Front St., will host a technology fair, otherwise known as TechFest 2013, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday.

The library also has partnered with the McHenry Best Buy store to demonstrate the latest electronic devices. 

The library will have hands-on, interactive learning stations throughout the building to demonstrate an early childhood learning workstation, Tumblebooks (downloadable children’s books), early literacy apps, Grolier databases, the library’s new Simple Scan/Fax station, Chilton’s auto repair database, genealogy resources and Consumer Reports Online. 

Associates from the McHenry Best Buy store will demonstrate some new gadgets, such as phones, tablets and eReaders.

Attendees will get a free cellphone stand just for trying something out at one of the stations. They also can enter to win a special door prize – an iPad Mini – after they’ve visited some of the stations.

The event is for all ages; no registration is required. 

For information, call the library at 815-385-0036 or visit www.mchenrylibrary.org.
