Kindle Coaching

Your library offers more than just books on paper! Did you know you can borrow library books on Kindle, and other digital media? If you need coaching on how to do this, visit Dan Paré at Queset House.
Come learn about Libby and OverDrive, two apps and websites you can use to borrow eBooks for all Kindle devices, as well as audiobooks, magazines, and videos for Kindle Fires. You can also learn how to use the apps on your smart devices.
When you come to your appointment, you're encouraged to bring your library card and Kindle (or smart device), as well as the sign-in info and password for the Amazon account connected to your Kindle, so you can practice borrowing a Kindle book during the coaching.
Sessions are held every Monday from 11:00 am - 12:00 noon, and on the 4th Saturday of the month at 2:00 & 3:00 pm, and are by appointment only.
Please schedule your session online HERE, or call 508-238-2000, ext. 3.
