BiblioTech Outreach

As a non-traditional library, we understand that there may be a technology learning curve. This is why we offer personalized training of our services. Training may include group presentations, one-on-one technology training, and information table presentations. We tailor our presentations to each audience, ranging from 3rd grade elementary to senior citizens, parent groups to the Rotary Club, and large community events to small neighborhood meetings.

School Engagement

Part of BiblioTech’s mission is to use technology to enhance student education and literacy. What better way to engage students than right in their classroom? Our outreach team travels throughout Bexar County offering engaging presentations to students, parents, and educators, as well as coordinating school-wide library card drives. Help us spread the word about BiblioTech and put a library card in the hand of every student in Bexar County.
