CATS Annual Meeting Presents:   Get into the Cloud

Many patrons are already using cloud services and many would benefit
from their use.

Libraries need to  embrace the Cloud and leverage the adoption of
cloud services to prepare for a Cloud based digital lifestyle.

Join this panel as they discuss the reasons for adopting Cloud
services, the current and future trends of the field and practical
collaborative applications for using the cloud in libraries such as
Microsoft Office 365.

Discussion with Food and Refreshments to follow.

What: Technology Information Forum Annual Holiday Meeting
When: Thursday, December 4, 2014
Where: Connetquot Public Library
Time: 10 am Meeting – 11am Lunch


Please join us and bring a friend that may be interested in attending as well. We are looking to see faces that we haven’t seen in quite some time and enjoy having new folks attend as well. The tech forum is open to everyone and we encourage all of you to attend.


We also encourage you folks to bring a dish with you as well. Many of you are fantastic cooks and it shows each year! We will provide the main course and salads. We are looking for dessert, snacks, dips, chips and finger foods. Janet Kowal was nice enough to create a form in which you can submit what you will be bringing to the meeting. If you are a visitor, don’t worry about the food, just enjoy the time with your colleagues.

We will also have our “secret techie”. Please bring a wrapped gift to participate. The limit is $15 this year. Bring one and get one in return. This has always been a big hit and is a fun way to get a surprise gift!


Once again, please think about attending and bring someone you think may be interested in our group. Collectively, we have made great strides in the technology and information arena. Please continue to help us grow!


Happy Holidays!
