York County libraries offer help understanding new gadgets, e-readers

Kindle Touch

This undated photo provided by Amazon.com shows the Amazon Kindle Touch. Learn how to use your new e-reader with help from York County Libraries’ information services desk.

So you received a new e-reader for Christmas. Or tablet. Or digital camera.

It came with directions, of course. But sometimes, they’re not as easy to decipher as you’d think. Let your library help.

Patrons can call York County Libraries’ information services line for help on navigating the libraries’ eBranch or downloading an e-book onto a new device. That number is 717-846-5300, ext. 226.

If you feel like you need more help or an in-person tutorial, two library branches are offering one-on-one instruction. Stop by Dillsburg Library’s Tech Day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Jan. 5 for one-on-one instruction. Teen volunteers from Trinity High School will be on hand to help with your new¬†smartphone, tablet, web cam, digital camera or other technology.

Or, register for Glatfelter Memorial Library’sLearn How to Download Library Books to Your Device” sessions at 1 and 6 p.m. Jan. 10. The two-hour tutorials will focus on e-Materials, the catalog and downloading a book to your device. Attendees should bring the device and a laptop, if needed. Kindle users will also need their Amazon user name and password. Register by calling the library at 717-225-3220.
