The Little Mobile Library in the Heart of Refugee Camps

One of our particular interests at TechSoup is the refugee crisis. This year we launched an online technology informational resource for NGOs and libraries that serve refugees called Refugee Response. Hoping that you share our interest, we thought you might like to know about the volunteer library-on-wheels humanitarian project in Greece called Education. Community. Hope. Opportunity. (ECHO). People in need eventually need more than food, water, and shelter.

Technology Outreach--On the Road!

On October 8th I presented at the Association of Bookmobile and Outreach Services (ABOS) annual conference in Everett, Washington. The presentation was about Techlab, the King County Library System’s mobile computer lab. Techlab is King County Library System’s fully equipped mobile classroom with eight laptop computer workstations, a full productivity software suite, broadband internet access, and a screen projector for group instruction!
