The library will be holding classes on downloading eBooks from the library to your Kindle, Nook, iPad or other device on Saturday, April 6th at 2 p.m. Be sure to bring your device to class. Don’t have an eReader? You can still access content on a computer or smartphone.
Users may browse the library’s website, check out with a valid library card, and download to PC, Mac®, and many mobile devices. Users will need to install free software. Titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period. There are no late fees!
The digital library will be available for those with a valid library card. With hundreds of popular fiction and non-fiction titles to choose from, the new collection is guaranteed to have something for everyone. You can download best-selling novels, well-known classics, self-improvement guides, and much more.
This new service, powered by OverDrive, is free with your library card. If you do not have a library card, adults need to fill out an application and have their state ID. For those under 18, an adult must have or apply for a card and co-sign the juvenile’s application. Library cards are free to anyone in the Whitewright area, and allows you to check out books, audiobooks, DVDs, and much more.
If you have an eReader or tablet computer that you’re no longer using, please consider donating it to the library. We can either add it to our eReader lab or, potentially, be able to preload it with eBooks and allow card holders to borrow it. Like books and other materials, equipment donations to the library are tax deductible. Our eReader lab will be available to browse during both presentations, in case you’re still looking for the right eReader for you.
The class is free, but registration is required! To register, call 903-364-2955 or stop by the library. For more information on the new digital library, visit whitewright.lib.tx.us.
