TECHNOLOGY PETTING ZOO: TRY A TABLET!

We know you can try out different tablets and apps at stores, but the library is the place to play with apps to your heart's content – we have almost 100 apps downloaded and ready for you to try on these devices:

  • iPads (2)
  • iPod Touch
  • Kobo Arc
  • Nexus 7
  • Nabi Tab

Just like a real petting zoo, you can have fun with the devices in the library, but they cannot be taken home.

The technology petting zoo is perfect if:

  • you're looking to try out a new app before you buy it (or ask your parents to buy it)
  • you like to experiment and play with different apps
  • you're just bored in the library!

GO APE FOR APPS!

Librarians don't just love books – we love apps too! We've chosen all of our favourites and put them on our technology petting zoo devices and raved about them here.
