E-READER FOR CHRISTMAS? TIME TO COME TO THE LIBRARY

You just unwrapped a new e-reader. Now what? It’s time to visit the Lexington Public Library.

To begin with, the library has resources to get you started with your e-reader, including specially-trained staff. Once you know how your e-reader works, you can then check out free e-books from the library’s collection of almost 6,000 circulating e-books.

For e-reader assistance, the library has:

• Staff at each of the library system’s six locations trained on the various e-readers, whether Kindle, Nook, iPad, Android or other devices. Call 231-5500 and choose your preferred location to schedule a time for help.

• A collection of online guides for various e-readers, including video instructions. Visit www.lexpublib.org/guides/ereaders.

• Book-A-Librarian at Central Library, which allows customers to schedule one-on-one time with a librarian for help with research questions, including e-reader assistance. Schedule time at www.lexpublib.org/book-a-librarian.

For free e-books, the library has a collection of titles that has circulated almost 120,000
e-books since it first became available two years ago. To check out an e-book, visit www.lexpublib.org and go to eLibrary on the left-hand side of the screen.
