E-Reader Lunch & Learn Session

Are you thinking of asking Santa for an e-reader this holiday season?  Do you already have a Kindle, Nook, or other e-reader and want to know how to access FREE Library e-books?

Come to our “Lunch & Learn” session to play, ask, discover, and learn about selected e-readers, including the Kindle, Nook, and Sony.  A variety of e-readers will be available to play with!

Susan Wood, Librarian at the New Hanover County Public Library, will be on hand to demonstrate a variety of e-readers and to help you to access e-books from the North Carolina Digital Library.

Date:  Wednesday, December 7th @ Noon

Location: L-228

This is an informal brown bag session. 

Feel free to bring your lunch!

Tip: If you are bringing your own e-reader, please be sure that it is charged and that you also bring your New Hanover County Public Library card—so you can begin borrowing right away!
