Tech Petting Zoo – Montrose Library Kids

Montrose Library District hosted a Tech Petting Zoo in the Margaret H. Gill Children’s room, and we brought some of our favorite “Animals” to share!

The event was a huge hit, over 111 kids and parents showed up to ask questions and learn about new technology and tools that can be used for cool projects at home.

Nathan, Geoff, Chuck and Andrew had so much fun, we might have to do this again real soon!
