New Technology Training Lab (Now Open): NYPL TechConnect iMac Creator Lab
TechConnect is building a brand new iMac lab at Mid-Manhattan Library opening up this summer! This new lab will feature 20 iMac desktops along with courses on how to use the Apple desktop and the programs on it. One of the feature courses will be video editing on iMovie.
The graduation for the Spring 2014 Project_<code> class was an amazing event where students celebrated their work and listened to a keynote on the future of online coding using HTML and CSS.
To improve resources for our patrons, NYPL has installed more than 2,600 new desktops and laptops and made upgrades to nearly 4,200 additional computers throughout its 92 locations. Hardware and software improvements include a new operating system, up-to-date versions of several web browsers, and such programs as Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Quicktime, RealPlayer, Windows Media Player, and more.
The Library is also introducing Macintosh computers to select locations. Mac desktops are now available at Mulberry Street, Mariners Harbor and Washington Heights Libraries.
