West Vancouver, B.C. – From 3D printing to online security, coding to cloud computing, technology is rapidly changing the way we operate and interact with our world.  A new “Tech Talks” series at West Vancouver Memorial Library brings technology experts, community members and library staff together for informative presentations and discussions on new and emerging technologies.

“This new series is for anyone with an interest in learning more about emerging technologies and how they are changing our world,” says Digital Access Librarian Sarah Felkar.

“The Tech Talks series evolved out of our longstanding and successful technology training programs that have helped hundreds of patrons connect with today’s technology,” says Director of Library Services Jenny Benedict.  “We’re really excited about bringing these innovators and innovations to West Vancouver.”
