Do you need help figuring out your e-reader or tablet?

Posted:
QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) -

Did you get an e-reader or tablet for Christmas and you're still not sure how to use it?

The Quincy Public Library wants to help you figure it out.

The Library is hosting a series of e-reader "how to" courses. Organizers are teaching people how to check-out and download library books to their devices.

Librarians say learning the new technology helps people navigate through the new virtual library systems.

"E-reading has allowed a lot of our people to, you know, if they don't want to travel in bad weather to the library they can check out a book temporarily. It has also allowed users who check out lots of books. Some books are only available online so they have gone to using e-readers," said reference librarian Bobbi Muck.

The library is offering more classes on e-readers in the future.

The next one is Wednesday at 6 p.m. and is open to the public.
