I get it! Really – I’ve been there. The latest gadget, smartphone, tablet, eReader, electronic “thing” comes out and you’ve just gotta have it. It doesn’t matter if you and electronics mix together like a paperback and a bubble bath; new gadgets are cool. Or perhaps you are the type of person who has finally taken the plunge into the digital age and recently purchased the latest electronic “thingie.” The point is, we have them. Now… how do we use them?
Have no fear, device using citizens! St. Thomas Public Library to the rescue! Some folks from the library are setting up a workshop with the specific purpose of showing you how to browse, check out, download, transfer, and read eBooks on your gadget. It doesn’t matter what type or brand of personal electronic device you have: Blackberry, Android, Kobo, Kindle, Sony, Apple, whatever! (We have some pretty tech savvy people on staff who know all about these kinds of things and they’re pretty good teachers, too!) The point is, you’ll have someone who knows what they’re doing sit down with you one-on-one to help you “get” your fancy gadget so you can read eBooks.
“Get” Your Gadget eBook Workshop Details:
Saturday, October 22, 2011
10:00 a.m. until Noon (individual half hour sessions will be booked)
Library Meeting Place, Elgin Mall
Space is limited so email Carol at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Information Desk at 519-631-6050 to book your spot today! Also, be sure to spread the word. I have some parents, aunts, and uncles who would definitely benefit from having someone show them how to use their gadget to read eBooks and they may or may not read this blog…
OK, slight disclaimer. I know I said “any” gadget, but some devices are simply not compatible to the eBook service we subscribe to. If you’re a “better safe than sorry” kind of person, you can check here to see if your device can download library eBooks.
