Reading eBooks in the Browser

A few times every week I’ll have customers approach me after searching our public catalogs and ask, “What does it mean if it says it’s an ‘eBook?'” When I explain, I always take care to emphasize that an eReader, tablet, or smartphone is not required for most of our digital materials in print—all that’s needed is a regular computer with a modern Web browser and active connection.

Win a Nook HD+

You are a person on the move. Which means you may not have the luxury of visiting your friendly neighborhood library as often as you wish to check out those magazines and books you’ve promised yourself you’d read. If only you had a Nook HD+ so you could freely access and read your favorite books and magazines without stopping off at the library. Well, here’s your chance to win a Nook HD+ and do just that!

Sign up for either the Adult Summer Reading program or the new Zinio eMagazine service at the library this summer, and you will be entered into a drawing for a Nook HD+. Join the Summer Reading program AND register for Zinio, and double your chances to win!
