Do you know where your data is?

Just a friendly reminder, whether you are using the public computers at the Moline Public Library or your home computer (or any other computer or digital device for that matter), back up your work and important files. Things go wrong, and you don’t want to lose that new resume that you just spent 2 hours on because of a power surge (or because someone accidentally kicked a cord and unplugged your computer), so save your work and save it often. Trust us, it is a good habit to have and you’ll be happier for it in the long run.


Today is World Backup Day. Do you know where your data is?

Back Up Day

Today is the day that everyone everywhere is reminded and encouraged to create a backup copy of all that digital information that you can’t live without, from tax records to pictures of the grandkids. You can go to the official website for more information.

What does this have to do with Moline Library? Nothing. We just think that it’s a really good idea and we like to look out for folks. May your digital information last forever (but we’d back it up just in case).
