Programs & Events

Metronet Wind Downs
Metronet Wind Downs are designed to give library staff a quick introduction to current topics in the library world. Keep checking this space for upcoming sessions.

Do you have an idea or topic for a future Wind Down? Would you like to present a Wind Down? Want to host a Wind Down at your library? Email with your ideas.

23 Mobile Things
The first round of 23 Mobile Things ended on July 15. Lots of people notified us that they have completed all the Things and have received their nifty completion prize package. If you completed the program but didn't request badges or otherwise notify us, please do so by emailing

Did you miss out on the first round or got too busy to finish all 23 Things? Don't worry - Round 2 will begin in 2015. Watch for details!
