Getting started with eBooks
Here at the Everett Public Library we are trying to change that fact. This Saturday, September 14th, we will be having two drop-in sessions dedicated to connecting your eReader, tablet or smartphone to the Library’s eBook collection. One session will start at 10 am at the Main Library in the auditorium. The second will start at 1 pm and be at the Evergreen Branch meeting room.
During each 2 hour session there will be actual humans, not Cylons or replicants, to help you check out and download free eBooks from the library through OverDrive. There will even be instructions sheets that you will be able to take home with you.
In order to make the sessions more helpful to you, there are three things that you should consider before attending:
Remember to bring a valid Everett Library card, which is required to check out eBooks. If you don't have a card yet, come visit us and get one today!
In order to download eBooks from the library, you need to have a device that is compatible with OverDrive. Check out the list of OverDrive-compatible devices to make sure yours is on the list.
Most devices will access eBooks by downloading them in Adobe ePub or Adobe PDF format, which requires the use of an Adobe ID. If you do not have an Adobe ID, you can easily create one with any active email account.
So come to the library this Saturday, and don't forget to bring your eReader, and get that rarest of things in our technological world: hands on instruction from knowledgeable human beings.
