Residents will be able to sign out a user-friendly Android tablet for up to one week at a time. Staff from the Myerberg’s Tech-Knowledge Hub will pre-program the devices, generously donated by T-Mobile, with useful applications, including the Myerberg’s Virtual Center, which offers access to 60 weekly live and recorded classes and social programs.
