E-readers and tablets were popular holiday gifts this year, and many West Hartford residents may not be aware that ebooks can be downloaded free of charge to those who hold a valid library card.
In order to educate those who may not be familiar with downloading ebooks, the West Hartford Public Library is hosting a demonstration for beginners on Wednesday, Jan. 2.
The following information was contained in a news release from the library:
Learn how to borrow ebooks from the West Hartford Public Library. This live demo is for beginners and will be hosted by Max Rowe of Library Connection based in Windsor, CT. No registration is needed for this program which will be held in the Noah Webster Library Meeting Room, 20 S. Main Street, West Hartford.
Library patrons will learn how to download ebooks for loan using their West Hartford Library card. Once downloaded, titles can be read on a computer, or may be transferred to any number of supported portable devices, including smart phones and tablets. Find out what books are available, and how you use the free software or app needed for downloading ebooks.
Bring along your own device and get hands-on help. Doors open at 6:15 p.m.
This program will be held on Wednesday, Jan. 2, 2013, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. No registration is required. Park in the nearby Isham Garage and bring your parking stub to the library for validation.
