STUART, Fla., March 14, 2011 – With technology changing daily, many of us are having a hard time keeping up.  In fact, we’re experiencing a kind of “techmania.”  The Martin County Library System and the Friends of the Blake Library are holding an event called TechMania! so you can find out what’s going on in the world of technology, and what better place than the state-of-the-art Cummings Branch in Palm City?

On April 2 from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. stop by the Cummings Library for vendor exhibits including

  • Barnes & Noble with the Nook™ eReader
  • C&W Computing addressing “cloud” technology
  • AT&T and Verizon with information on mobile technology

and many more local businesses who will address your technical needs. 

Mini-sessions will be held throughout the day on topics from choosing an eReader to using Facebook, from mobile technology to using a digital camera, to the Treasure Coast Mac Users Group demoing Apple products including the iPad. 

Learn how to access many databases “free” through the library system’s website.  Interested in gaming?  Come and experience Wii bowling and Microsoft Xbox Kinect.  If you get hungry processing all this new technology, Gattuso’s Italian Market will be selling delectable fare all day. 

Free drawings will be held throughout the day. 

Experience some relief from your own “techmania” at TechMania! Saturday, April 2 from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. at the Cummings Library, 2551 S.W. Matheson Avenue, Palm City.  For more information call (772) 221-1403, pick up a flier with complete schedule at any Martin County library or visit http://www.library.martin.fl.us.
