Escondido, CA – Escondido Public Library will offer “eReaders eXplained,” providing instruction and demonstrations on how to access and download free library eBooks and online magazines to your smartphone, tablet, eReader, or computer. eReaders eXplained, will be held on Monday, December 8, 2014, and again on Tuesday, January 20, 2015, from 6:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in the Turrentine Room.

eReaders eXplained takes the mystery out of how to use Library eBooks with eReaders, including iPads, iPhones, and other tablets, and will provide step-by-step guidance for the required one-time set-up. Anyone considering purchasing an eReader for their own personal use, or as a gift, can also learn different eReader product features. In addition, the program will also provide information on how to access, Zinio, the Library’s new, downloadable free magazine collection with over 100 popular magazines for use on computers, smart phones and tablets. Attendees should bring their own devices to get the most out of this hands-on learning experience.
