NEWPORT—Those with Nooks, Kindles, and Ipads who have
questions about their use will quite likely find the needed answers at a
workshop planned for Tuesday, Nov. 12, at Stokely Memorial Library.
Amy Kimani of the Holston Regional Library Center will be on
hand between 2-4 p.m. that afternoon to demonstrate and answer questions about
these devices as part of the Tennessee State Library and Archives READS
(Regional Ebook and Audiobook Download System).
The state library system, of which Cocke County’s four
public libraries, Cosby Community, Del Rio (Marie Ellison Memorial),
Parrottsville, and Stokely Memorial, are a part, offers thousands of ebooks and
audiobooks to library patrons. “These digital titles can be downloaded to your
personal computer and then transferred to various portable devices such as MP3
players and ebook readers,” says Meschelyn Barrett, Stokely Memorial Library
“We’re happy to host Amy who will answer any questions you
might have,” she continued. “Please feel free to bring your own devices or plan
to try out one of hers.”
For more information, call 423-623-3832 Mondays-Saturdays
between 10-5. The workshop is free.
