NixleBe Prepared - Join Nixle!

With the recent fires in the North Bay, it's a good reminder to be prepared in case of emergency. One thing you can do is sign up for Nixle's (FREE) automatic notifications from emergency service providers (police, fire, sherriff, etc...). Open your messages app, start a new text message, put in "888777" as the number. Then in the text message part (where you would type your message), put in your zipcode.  Go to www.nixle.com for more information.

Well we have a workshop just for you!  Thanks to the donations of our supporters, Technology4Life is offering a FREE workshop for seniors who want to learn a little about using iPads and tablets and at the same time learn a little about the internet. 

Even if you don't have a device, no problem!  We will bring in iPads and tablets and let you try them out while we teach you some basics about how to use the internet.  Learn to shop without driving or where to catch a bus to the doctor's office or to the movie theater; or where to find answers to personal medical issues. We will let you try a device and teach you a few basics steps so you can use the internet safely and protect your privacy.  Don't be afraid to try it for yourself in a relaxed setting with others who are just beginning like you.
