Libraries help readers with electronic devices & E-books
Do you have a new Kindle or Nook™, but you’re not sure how to use it? Are you shopping for a mobile reading device, and would like more information on the different options? Throughout the month of August, Fort Bend County Libraries will have Question-and-Answer sessions and classes to help readers enter the digital age of e-Readers and eBooks.
e-Reader Question and Answer hours are weekly come-and-go sessions during which patrons can bring their mobile reading devices and have their questions answered about the device or about downloading e-books. The schedule of sessions for August is as follows:
• Tuesdays, 11:45 am-1:00 pm – Sugar Land Branch Library, 550 Eldridge.
• Tuesdays, 1:00-3:00 pm – George Memorial Library, 1001 Golfview, Richmond.
• Wednesday, August 6; 10:00-11:00 am – Cinco Ranch Branch Library, 2620 Commercial Center Blvd in Katy.
e-Reader Classes take readers through the process of browsing, selecting, and downloading e-books and audiobooks to their e-readers from the library’s digital library collection, OverDrive. The schedule of classes is as follows:
• “eBooks for Beginners” – August 12, 6:00 pm – Albert George Branch Library, 9230 Gene Street, Needville.
