Meet Buddy the Dinosaur from the PBS Kids’ show Dinosaur Train and test drive the hottest new mobile devices during our Dino-Mite Mobile Devices event. Learn about free apps, ebooks and emagazines for the whole family.

“Our goal is to showcase technology tools to help kids learn, and highlight free tools and services that are available to kids and families,” said Molly Delaney, educational outreach director at Illinois Public Media. Illinois Public Media is partnering with the library and Best Buy for the event.

A technology “petting zoo” provided by Best Buy will allow families to try out new mobile devices, while WILL is bringing iPads and Kindles with PBS educational games so families can try them out. We’ll also have other dinosaur activities.The library will demonstrate how families can make use of ebooks and emagazines in the library collection.
