By now you’ve heard about eBooks and how people everywhere are downloading electronic books onto their computers or eReaders. Maybe you’re already an old pro at using eBooks. But if you’re new to the scene and want to know what’s available at your library, you’re in luck. The Alameda County Libraries have a great guide to help you understand how your computer or eReader works with the library’s eBook collections.
Head to our our eReaders Guide at guides.aclibrary.org/ereaders and click on a tab to see how you can download eBooks from the library’s collections onto your eReader (or future eReader). If you’re considering purchasing an eReader, you’ll find sources to help you compare the different devices. Kindle, Kindle Fire, Nook, Sony, iPad,, Android etc., all these choices make my head hurt so this guide helps to clear the confusion.
To learn even more about eBooks, keep April 7th open on your calendar and stop by the Fremont Main Library to walk through the DigitalBookmobile. This is a great opportunity to see first hand how to download eBooks and a chance to walk around a truly unique Bookmobile. Maybe I’ll see you there!
