Presentation On Facebook

VIRN has been offering the Tech-Ease program for over ten years. We pride ourselves on sharing information about tools and technology to help the community of people who are vision impaired, their family and friends have equal access to information, download audio books, music and other reading materials through public library services, use GPS for mobility and independent travel and much more.
Sorry for any inconvenience we have moved the date to Wednesday, October 12th.
On Wednesday, October 12th we proudly welcome one of our young community members Michael Mielniczek who will be doing a presentation on setting up and using Facebook.

Technology helps to keep us connected, informed and is inclusive.
