Tuesday, January 31, 2012Are you considering the purchase of an e-reader? Learn more about the variety of devices available and how they can be used to download digital books from Library on the Go. Forsyth Public Library is offering “Introduction to E-readers” on Thursday, February 2 from 9:30-10:30 a.m. Instructor Aric Monkman will compare the features of Nook, Kindle and other e-readers and then demonstrate how easy it is to borrow digital books with your library card. Please register in advance by calling the Library at 877-8174.
If you already have an e-reader but would like help using Library on the Go, training sessions are available on February 9, 16, or 23.. Aric returns to the Library each Thursday in February to provide guidance in accessing this library resource. Bring your e-reader, all cords, and your library card. If you have a laptop, bring that, too. Class size is limited to allow for individualized help, so call the library to reserve a spot in one of the 9:30 a.m. sessions.
LibraryOnTheGo is accessible from the Library’s webpage (www.forsythlibrary.com) and includes downloadable e-books, audio, books, movies and music. Materials can be downloaded to most e-readers, digital audio devices, and smartphones for 7 or 14 days, and are automatically returned at the end of the loan period, eliminating overdues.
