April Meeting - Clarington Public Library Offerings

Kiley, an extremely well-versed staff member of the Clarington Public Library Branches, described the services available to card holders, with special focus on the new e-Book checkout system. Of course, e-Books may be downloaded/reserved from home. (An initial personal visit to the library is required only to obtain a library card.) Books that are still under copyright will expire after the loan period. Those not under copyright can be kept forever. Library staff host workshops to help choose and use e-Readers, and will offer support by phone or e-mail. Special software installation is also required in order to download e-Books. Some e-Reader brands come with such software pre-installed.
