June 2019 Library Tech Newsbytes

A hand pulling a page out of a book

What's new in library tech! Welcome to our monthly collection of fun and hopefully useful news items from our great twitter feed and wherever else we find them.

This month we offer nothing less than the state of America's libraries in 2019 and the hot debate in Colorado on whether libraries should get into the local news business. On a more practical level, check out the new free U.K. cybersecurity tool to discover your vulnerabilities, how Canadians are reinventing tool lending libraries, some DIY makerspace game ideas for teens, and how the Contra Costa and Santa Barbara libraries in California have joined the movement to eliminate overdue fines.
