Exploring El Paso’s History with Mini-Digie

The Jose Cisneros Cielo Vista Branch Library was honored to play host to the El Paso Museum of History’s Mini-Digie wall during the month of November. Digie stands for Digital Information Gateway in El Paso. There is a larger, permanent Digie at the museum downtown in Cleveland Square and a mobile Mini-Digie, which travels around the city. Digie is a digital wall with a touchscreen that allows users to access photographs relating to the history of El Paso. The Digie in Cleveland Square is the second such digital wall in the world and was acquired through the 2012 Quality of Life bond.

On November 19th, City Council Representative Emma Acosta visited the Jose Cisneros Cielo Vista Branch Library to help introduce Mini-Digie to a group of teens during the library’s weekly Teen Hangout program. They learned about how Mini-Digie works and were able to interact with it. Afterward, a reception was held.20151119_171156

Library patrons were encouraged to interact with Mini-Digie during its stay at the library, and they were given the opportunity to complete a Digie Quest, which entitled them to enter a drawing for a Barnes and Noble giftcard.

Our winner!

Sadly, the Mini-Digie has moved on, but you can still visit the permanent digital wall in Downtown El Paso or look for Mini-Digie as it travels around town.
