Learn to Download Library eBooks

The Escondido Public Library will hold a training session to teach the public how to download free library eBooks to their eReader device. The session will take place on Wednesday, January 18th from 11:00 a.m. until noon in the Turrentine Room. The Escondido Public Library is located in downtown Escondido at 239 South Kalmia Street.

The public is invited to bring in their eReader, such as a Sony Reader, Nook, Kindle, iPad, tablet or smartphone, and learn the basics of downloading library eBooks. All that is required of participants is basic familiarity with the use of their device. Library staff will provide step-by-step instructions for browsing the collection and downloading books from the library’s website

Escondido Public Library offers a wide selection of popular eBook titles, both fiction and non-fiction that can be “checked out” for up to three weeks. Library eBooks are free, can be conveniently accessed 24/7, and expire automatically which means no late fees.

This training is free and open to the public. Registration is not required, but early arrival is recommended. For more information on the library’s eBook downloads, see the eBook webpage or call 760.839.4839.
