E-book workshops at Rockland library

Feb 02, 2013

Rockland — Interested in reading free e-books on the Kindle or iPad?

Stop by Rockland Public Library Thursday afternoons through February to learn how to check out library e-books on the device. Digital titles can be checked out for up to two weeks, at the end of which the title is automatically deleted — no late fees.

Borrowing a library e-book on a Kindle or Kindle app is a two-step procedure, starting at the InfoNet download library (download.maineinfonet.org) and ending at Amazon.com to complete the library loan. Kindle owners will need to be able to log in to their Amazon account in order to use this service. If there is time, we will discuss other sources of free e-books on the Internet.

The public is invited to the workshops, held Thursday afternoons in the Friends Community Room at Rockland Public Library. An active library card at a participating library is required to use the download library. This workshop repeats Thursday, Feb. 7, 14, 21 & 28 at 2:30 p.m. Rockland Public Library is located at 80 Union St. in Rockland. For more information call the library: 594-0310.
