A librarian will be available for drop-in assistance with your technology questions on Saturdays from 11 a.m. -1p.m.in the library. Please bring your library card and your e-reader or other device, plus any cables you use to connect the device to a computer. You can check out one of our library’s e-readers for a test drive.

The library is now lending e-readers. We have two Google Nexus 7 readers available for a two week checkout. The e-readers will also be available for in-library “test drives” with assistance from the staff. Patrons borrowing the readers will be required to sign a borrower agreement in case the devices are lost or damaged. Patrons will also need access to WiFi to use the readers.
