Tennessee Library Association Presentation

Hi everyone!

Our TLA Presentation was yesterday morning, and it went off without a hitch. Well, except we ran out of 'play time' just as everyone was really getting into exploring Scratch. There was someone there who was posting our presentation to School Library Journal as we were presenting. [Glad I didn't know about that at the time, or I would have been more nervous than I already was!] I haven't had much time to search for the post this morning, but I as soon as I find…

Teen Tech Camp and computer configuration?

Hi all,

We have an available group of laptops here at the library that are off the server, and out of the system. It's a great setup when you want to add or delete programs, and perform updates.
