Local libraries offer e-Reader workshops, books for free download

Staff Report • Dec 26, 2012 at 10:59 AM

Did you get a new e-Reader for Christmas? Staff of the Kingsport Public Library and Sullivan County Library can help with your device and show you how to check out free eBooks and audiobooks.

On Thursday, January 3 from 9:00-5:00, Sullivan County Library, in Blountville, will have an open lab. Please bring your device. On Thursday, January 10 from 3:00-5:00, the Kingsport Public Library will present an e-Reader workshop. Please bring your device.

For people who have a SCL or KPL library card, you can enjoy our eBooks and audiobooks on your mobile device (eReaders, iPad, smart phones) by going to http://reads.lib.overdrive.com or find this link on both the libraries’ websites, http://www.wrlibrary.org/sullivan/ and www.kingsportlibrary.org . There you will find thousands of free downloadable bestsellers, adult non-fiction, teen and children’s titles. All you need is your library card. If you need help, there’s a great HELP resource on that download webpage. Even quick online tutorials!

For Kingsport Library patrons, you can also download the KPL app (Kingsport Library To Go) which will give you one-click access to these downloadable resources (plus info about the library’s programs & events, renew books, etc.) You can find the app in the Amazon, Android and iTunes stores. Not only are these titles free to use, but you’ll never have overdue fines on them because you don’t have to return them to the library.
