iPad/Tablet Device Club First meeting set to take place

The date for the first meeting has been set, the club will be starting on 5th November from 2.00p.m. - 4.00p.m in Central Library meeting room 5. The results of the survey had Wednesday afternoons as the most popular choice which is what that day was picked.

If you want to come along to the club will you please call 01302 735387 or email centrallibrary@doncaster.gov.uk so that we can get an idea of numbers as space is limited. Please let us know if you are coming along as someone who needs help or if you are coming as a helper.

The club will be for people to get together and help each other use their devices. Confident users will be able to help those who need it, and as a group we should all be able to pick up lots of hints and tips for using our devices in a friendly environment.

During the first meeting we will discuss what we want to cover and how often we would like to meet.  Please bring your iPad or tablet device along to the club with you.

The Winner of the Man Booker Prize 2014 is:

Richard Flanagan with The Narrow Road to the Deep North
