A Note from the Executive Director

Have you been thinking about AR and VR in your library or in your life?  Are you saying to yourself, “What is AR and VR?” like several people I have mentioned this to?  Do you think AR and VR are way beyond the capabilities and capacity of your library?  Well, no matter what you answered to these questions, we need you at the 2019 Emerging Tech Symposium on June 6th! Come join us for a day devoted to a wide variety of Augmented and Virtual Reality projects from things done on a shoestring to large, state-wide initiatives, to everything in between.  There will also be time to play with a variety of AR/VR and emerging tech items!  If you want to learn about the next big thing happening and get in on the cutting-edge, we would love to have you join us whether you are a techie, the person in charge of funding projects, or the person utilizing them in programming or in the classroom.  Make a day of it and come be inspired!
