Library plans tech petting zoo

Mesa County Libraries has scheduled what’s billed as a “tech petting zoo” to offer information about tablet computers, smart phones and other electronic devices.

The tech petting zoo is planned for noon to 4 p.m. Jan. 28 at the central library at 530 Grand Ave. in Grand Junction. The event is free and open to the public.

Participants will have an opportunity to visit booths set up by Grand Valley businesses and try out various electronic devices. Participants also will learn how to download library materials on their devices as well as use the library phone app and the new library computer work station set up to accommodate people with disabilities.

In addition, participants can ask library staff questions related to using tablet computers, smart phones and other devices.
