In This Issue: New Books & Movies, Take Our Tech Survey,
Trivia and Other Great Programs at the Library!
This Month's Feature
Over the past year, you’ve likely had to use and engage with new technology, from Zoom meetings to hybrid school. There have probably been moments of uncertainty but you’ve moved forward, staying connected with loved ones, classmates, and/or coworkers.
At the East Greenbush Community Library, we want to learn how we can best support your technology needs going forward. Our short survey is anonymous and takes only a couple of minutes to fill out. Will you please let us know?
We’re working with community partners over the next year to survey as many people as we can. Your anonymous responses today will be invaluable to help us understand the technology needs of the broader community. Thank you for your help!
Recent reads that library staff members really enjoyed. We hope you will, too!
