Curious about E-Reading?

You’ve probably heard in the media about the new trend in how people are reading  books these days.  E-books and e-readers and becoming increasingly popular and are becoming more visible every day.  A recent article in The Wall Street Journal, “The ABCs of E-Reading” by Geoffrey A. Fowler and Marie C. Baca reveals some useful statistics on the trend and illustrates how more and more people are finding e-books a nice option to reading the traditional book.

E-books, both in print and audio formats, are now available from The Fountaindale Public Library through two resources: NetLibrary and Overdrive.  To start using either of these sources for e-materials, go the the library’s website at www.fountaindale.org. From there, look for the Resources tab in the upper portion of the page, then go to Databases, then Alphabetical, and finally to the H – P grouping of Databases. Once there, you can then select either of the two e-sources.  If you need further assistance, one of our staff in the Adult and Teen Services Department will be glad to help you.  You can reach us directly by phone at 630-685-4716.

Happy e-reading!

– Tom
