If things go according to plan on Tuesday, Oct. 22, the Desmond-Fish Library’s Wi-Fi bandwidth will be full of people downloading apps to their smartphone and swapping stories about what works while eating great food.
“We’re hoping people will bring their devices and then share what they have,” said Pam McCluskey, Cybrarian at the library. “We hope they tell each other ‘You ought to check this one out’ and ‘I have this one, and this is what it does.’ ” The library is hosting the first ever Appy Hour from 6 to 7 p.m.
This is a chance for people with Apple and Android smartphones, media players and tablets to talk about varieties of smartphone software that are available and recommend ones they’ve used.
“Then they can sign on to our Wi-Fi and start downloading apps right away,” she said. “If they have questions, there are people right there to help them out.”
Everyone is asked to bring a snack to share. Coffee will be provided. Registration is requested, but not required. Call 845-424-3020 to register.
