Everyone Has Something to Share

VVIRN has been the leader in offering the Tech-Ease program for over ten years. We pride ourselves on sharing information about tools and technology to help the community of people who are vision impaired, their family and friends have equal access to information, download audio books, music and other reading materials through public library services, use GPS for mobility and independent travel and much more.

Next Tech-Ease Drop-In is: Monday, April 3rd
Millennium Library
Anhang Room on the 2nd Floor
251 Donald Street, Winnipeg
Southeast Corner of Donald & Graham

Time: 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Note: Please bring your own ear buds to all Tech-Ease drop-in sessions to help us eliminate distractions from interfering with each other.

Although it isn’t necessary, if you would let VIRN know a few days before coming then it will help us and make it easier to bring someone who can answer your question(s) then or work with you on the device you have brought along.

Technology helps to keep us connected, informed and is inclusive.
