Digital Photo Slideshow: Back in the 20th century families used to gather to watch images of birthdays and family vacations projected onto living room walls. Nowadays almost all of us use digital cameras, but family slideshows don’t have to be a thing of the past. Using Microsoft PowerPoint we can create exciting slideshows with added music, and even video, and they can be viewed on our TVs and shared in a variety of ways, including online. Please bring a flash drive or CD with your photographs. We encourage you to bring your own laptop if you have Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 or newer, otherwise we are happy to provide laptops for everyone. To register for this program call the library at: 607-936-3713 x 502. You can also register by sending an email to: DIGLIT@STLS.ORG

Date/Time: Thursday, March 31, 2016, Time: 2:00 – 4:00 pm

This program will offer an overview of the digital library materials SSCL patrons can checkout and access from wherever they are at any time of the day or night.
