Do you have a Nook, Kindle, Kobo, ipad, iphone, android, blackberry or other device for reading eBooks? Do you want to learn how you can borrow eBooks for free from libraries in Oswego County?
On Thursday, February 2, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. you can attend a workshop on borrowing eBooks through North Country Library System (NCLS).
The workshop is presented at Oswego Public Library in the Public Computing Center on the lower level of the Library by Matt Corey, an Instructor from NCLS. Matt will demonstrate how to borrow eBooks and audio books from public libraries in the area through the North Country Library System.
If you have an eReader device, you are welcome to bring it. Following the workshop, Matt and other Instructors will be on hand to provide one-on-one help with eReader devices.
North Country Library System has a collection of eBooks for loan. Patrons should understand that the eBook collection is fairly new and is still being built. Not all book titles are available yet in eBook format, and the library system has not yet purchased a large quantity of eBooks.
Yet, borrowing eBooks for your eReader is a valuable service for all library patrons. If you don’t have a library card, now is a good time to get one.
Please call the Library at 341-5867 or go to the Main Desk in the Library to sign up for classes and workshops. Oswego Public Library is located at 120 East Second St. in Oswego. Public Computing Center workshops are provided free of charge through a Broadband Technology Opportunity (BTOP) grant.
