I WANT ONE!  But, I don't know if I could give up my paperback books.  My daughter is hooked on hers, but she's young and embraces technology wholeheartedly.  I, on the other hand, have to take my time when it comes to learning "new computer techniques" and sometimes choose the "old-fashioned" way of doing things.  Maybe it's time to get an e-reader, now that the Duluth Public Library is offering FREE help.

Maybe you didn't even know that you can borrow ebooks from the Duluth Public Library.  They do and provide assistance if the whole concept is new to you.  Doesn't matter what brand of ereader you have Kindle, Nook or other another brand, they can help.

They will be offering a short session on Monday, October 15 at 6:30 pm in the Main Library Green Room (520 W. Superior St.). You'll learn the basic features of popular eReaders   how to use the library website to download books.

Of course, if you're like me and learn more easily with a one-on-one approach, individual assistance with your eReader will be available from 10 am - noon on Wednesday, October 17 at the Mt. Royal Branch Library (105 Mt. Royal Shopping Circle) and from 10 am - noon on Wednesday, October 24 at the West Duluth Branch Library(5830 Grand Avenue) .

For more information, call the library's Fiction/Media desk at 730-4200/option 6.
