Member libraries have high-end videoconferencing equipment to access programs, to conduct meetings and to interact with other organizations beyond the walls of the library. Virtual meeting rooms are cost-effective for local businesses, distant education students, and others in the community.
Marigold Consultants provide:
Programming support and training
Technical support for equipment, scheduling, and connecting sessions for the entire network and beyond
Marketing and promotional materials
Marigold Board, committees, and headquarters staff also take advantage of this technology to save travelling time and flight costs.
Connecting libraries, connecting people
The RISE Network is an award-winning* partnership that helps southern Albertans access the information they need, right from their local library. Book meetings, interview for jobs, and participate in programs about law, nature, health, and much more with videoconferencing at the library.
Contact your local library to use videoconferencing equipment.
This service is managed by the RISE Network
