Did you get an eReader for Christmas or Hanukkah but have no idea to use it?
That’s OK. We can help you turn your digital doodad into a repository for the books, magazines and even movies you love.
Mentor Public Library is holding a pair of classes in January where we’ll show you how to get the most out of your tablets, eReaders and smartphones.
These classes are free and open to everyone.
The first session is 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Jan. 18, at our Main Branch. It’s specifically for those with Kindles and Kindle Fires. Learn how to check out eBooks and more on your new eReader.
The second session is for those with tablets (including iPads) and smartphones. It’s 10 a.m. on Saturday, Jan. 21, at our Main Branch. If you want to learn how to download books and audiobooks onto your tablet or smartphone, this session is for you.
Mentor Public Library offers a lot of digital services that are always available, even when our buildings are closed; and you can use them from the comfort of your own home.
Once you know how to do it, you’ll be able to check out library eBooks, stream audiobooks and even watch movies (depending on what kind of device you use) from home.
No excuses: You’re never too old or old-fashioned (or too young, for that matter,) to learn something new.
If you’re pretty tech savvy and think you can figure out how to use your eReader without too much help, we’ve posted a bunch of how-to’s for each device on our website.
But if you want a little more help, feel free to register for one of our classes or the Thursday tutorials at our Lake Branch. Or you can bring your device to the library and one of our reference librarians will show you how to get the most out of it.
