Redwood City Public Library Offers Quick Workshops on eBooks and eReaders
Redwood City, CA - February 17, 2012 - More and more people are accessing the Library’s materials electronically with their eBook readers such as iPads, Kindles, Nooks, laptops, desktops, smartphones, and other devices. This is just one more way that members of the community can check out reading materials and audiobooks, and the Redwood City Public Library is offering two workshops to bring these digital library users up to speed.
There are two identical workshops scheduled:
- Wednesday, February 22, 7 - 8 pm
- Wednesday, February 29, 7- 8 pm
Both workshops take place in the Computer Lab at the Downtown Library, 1044 Middlefield Road in Redwood City. Space is limited, and RSVPs should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
These engaging one-hour workshops are a great opportunity to explore the various computers and devices that can be used with library eBooks and audiobooks. Participants will learn how to get started with the right software they’ll need, see live demonstrations of how to browse, checkout, and download eBooks, and learn a bit about the Library’s lending policies such as how many items can be checked out, and for how long. There’ll be plenty of time for question and answers at these hands-on eBook workshops.
In addition to the Redwood City Library collection, cardholders also have access to the Peninsula Library System’s eBooks. The Library’s eBooks and audiobooks are downloadable 24/7.
The award winning Redwood City Public Library connects the community and inspires a love of reading and learning through innovative, visionary programming and services such as literacy programs, access to technology, and safe, inviting spaces for youth and families. It’s all online at www.redwoodcity.org/library.
