Learn how to get free e-books at the library
How about free books? Attend one of five drop-in sessions for adults at the Stanwood branch of Sno-Isle Library, and staff will help you learn about the downloadable collection and offer support in setting up e-readers to download the digital offerings.
Sessions are 1 to 2:30 p.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday; or 2 to 3:30 p.m. Jan 4 and 5.
Bring your device to the session that you attend, and a laptop, if you have one. A Sno-Isle Libraries card is needed to download books and other items.
At a more formal class from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Jan. 10, librarian Mark Burnett will present "Librarians as Information Guides: Downloading eBooks at Your Library." Space is limited and registration is required. Burnett teaches the basics of downloading free e-books and audiobooks through Sno-Isle's website.
Bring a laptop, library card, and e-reader or audio device if you want to download an item during class.
Stanwood librarians also are happy to help people with consumer information resources, such as Consumer Reports, for purchasing digital devices.
To register or for more information, call 360-629-3132 or go to www.sno-isle.org and then click on Events & Programs.
The library is at 9701 271st St. NW, Stanwood.
