Tablet Tuesdays 2018

Washington County Libraries are teaming up to bring you Tablet Tuesdays, a series of informational iPad classes! Due to a generous grant from the Federal Library Services and Technology Act (LSTA), the five libraries in Washington County – Germantown, Hartford, Kewaskum, Slinger and West Bend – received $3,000 in additional funding for 2018. The primary purpose for use of this funding is:

  • Utilization of technology to improve library services
  • Convenient access and quality library services for all residents
  • Support the equalization of access to information and lifelong learning resources

The public libraries wanted to create a collaborative project and partnership that meets these goals by providing the residents of Washington County with technology classes. Tablet Tuesdays is a series of informational classes, aimed to provide technology skills as part of a core mission of the public library: lifelong learning.

Each month, a different topic is offered at one of the five public libraries. Sign-up is required as space is limited. There is no cost to participate. Please call the library where each session is held to sign up.
