Call me Sisyphus. You might remember him from your elementary school literature unit on Greek myths. He's the guy who is tasked with rolling an enormous ball up a hill only to watch it roll back down, leaving him to start all over again from square one. For eternity!

Can I borrow a MAC?
Last year, our Youth Services department, and specifically our Teen Center, underwent a freshening up. After reconfiguring our floor space and thinking about how it is used, we decided to purchase several MacBook PROs for afterschool use. We had been circulating e-readers and tablets, so this was a natural next step for us.
We made an initial purchase of eight laptops, and the kids went wild! We rolled out this new service a year ago and it has proven to be so popular that we recently invested in six more just to keep up with the demand.
Tech savvy or tech wannabe?
Princeton Public Library has a new technology series beginning today, September 10th, continuing through the end of the year. During the next four months, a variety of classes have been scheduled from intro classes in Email and Facebook, to high tech Arduino and Raspberry Pi sessions, to classes for improving office skills such as Microsoft Excel for Mac and PowerPoint for Mac and many more.
