Join us on Wednesday, March 9th at 4pm to learn how to download ebooks for free through the library. If you have a smartphone, tablet, or e-reader (such as a Kindle or Nook), come join us! Participants should bring their device (fully charged), their library card, and library pin number.
This class is free but registration is required. Sign up in person at the library circulation desk, call us at 563-1200, or register online to save your spot.
Do you enjoy listening to stories? Consider joining us for our Podcasts computer class on Monday September 14, 2015 at 4pm in our Public Computing Center.
Podcasts are radio shows that you can download and listen to at your leisure. There are podcasts on a variety of subjects – entertainment, economics, politics, spirituality, and comedy are just a few. For example, if you like the popular radio show This American Life, you can subscribe to its podcast and listen to it when you have time. Many enjoy them while doing chores or driving to work. We will teach you how to download podcasts onto your phone or device and how to find podcasts you will like.
There are still a few spaces left in this class, but signup is required. Please call the Sidney Library (563-1200), register in person, or complete the registation online.
In addition to the large selection of books in our library, patrons can also borrow ebooks or audiobooks through the 4CLS Download Zone. You can search by category (historical fiction, fantasy, etc), see what’s new, or search for a particular author. Any ebook or audiobook that is unavailable can be put on hold, and you will receive an email when it is ready for you.
Many people listen to downloaded audiobooks on their smartphones, through the Overdrive app. Check it out on your own, or stop by the library to learn more.
