Technology Speed Dating - Meet Attractive and Suitable Technologies

It's time to set your technology life in order and begin your search

for the tech of your dreams and live happily ever after!


Update on Tech Speed Dating and Available Handouts.

All of this year's programs are now completed.  We've posted handouts from all three sessions.  Some topics were presented more than once by the same presenters and some by different presenters. Some handouts were revised between sessions to include new information.  Some topics/handouts were completely new to their session. Basically, we've tried to post unique versions, by different presenters.  If you have any questions about the handouts, please all Joanne Roukens at 732-752-7720.

In just three hours meet plenty of eligible technology.  Step back, observe and consider.  Ask yourself these questions:

  • Can I see myself living with technology for the rest of my life?
  • Do I see in these technologies such potential that I want to invest time in them?
  • Do these technologies have the character, values and goals that will foster my desire to help library users?

If you answer “yes” to any of these questions, this program is for you! Meet the right gadgets for you & your community! Learn from and with your colleagues in a relaxed, practical and fun environment!

Each program will feature:

  • Table talks staffed by expert colleagues - talk, listen, discuss, and learn one-on-one.
  • Hot topics: smartphones, iPads, ebook readers, gaming, mobile apps or websites, productivity tools (Google Drive, Dropbox, Evernote,etc.), social media (Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram, etc.) (Program content may be slightly different at each location.)
  • Gadgets and devices galore - get acquainted with your community’s favorite devices, and how much each one costs.
  • Short presentations on tech, best practices and resources for teaching technology to your users.


Ensure that your library and you are the go-to resource for your community on 21st century information, learning, and consumer technologies.

Each program will be scheduled from 10 AM - 1 PM, with coffee starting at 9:30.
