Digital Discovery Center

Opens at Henrietta Hankin Branch

As more and more people are using digital devices to communicate, read, and find information, the library has become a resource for those who need a little help in getting started. To assist their customers with all types of technology, including tablets, smart phones and eReaders, the Henrietta Hankin Branch Library has opened its new Digital Discovery Center.

Maybe you want to learn how to download free library eBooks to read on vacation, or make a Skype call with a distant family member. Maybe you just got a new Windows 8 laptop, or you need to fill out an online job application and you don’t have an email address. Whatever the reason, if your digital device is driving you crazy, or you just need a little guidance, look no further than the Digital Discovery Center at the Henrietta Hankin Branch Library.

Available devices at the Digital Discovery Center include a 23” Windows 8 computer with large type keyboard and ergonomic mouse, Microsoft Surface tablet, iPad Air, Samsung Galaxy Note tablet, Kindle Fire HDX and a Nook Simple Touch eReader. Try out the devices yourself during their weekly drop-in hours, or sign up for a one-on-one appointment with a staff member. You are welcome to bring your own device or practice with one of theirs. To make an appointment, or for additional information, please contact the Henrietta Hankin Branch Library Reference Desk at 610-321-1710 or email

The Digital Discovery Center was made possible by a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Pennsylvania Department of Education through the Office of Commonwealth Libraries, and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Tom Corbett, Governor.
