eBooks: Why Buy When You Can Borrow?
Are you starting to read books on a hand-held device, such as a Kindle, Nook, iPad or Sony Reader? Along with traditional books, the Crowell Library lends eBooks, as well, and they are free, of course. This session will be a combination of demonstrations and hands-on computer use to help you get the knack for getting eBooks onto your device. Bring your device, along with its USB chord and you’ll be on your way. Please register in advance by calling 626-300-0777 ext. 579.
The evening will start with an overview of the devices available, digital rights management issues and the Overdrive platform available to Crowell Library. Then the audience will break into smaller groups and learn about downloading to specific devices.
If that new reader has been sitting on your dresser since last Mother’s Day, now is the perfect time to learn the joy of reading the Autobiography of Mark Twain without the weight issues!
