eBooks: Compare and try before you buy @ your library

Thinking of investing in an electronic book reader?  Our information desk now offers a Sony e-reader and a Barnes & Noble Nook for patron demo.  Experience each e-reader without sales pressure!  Our friendly and knowledgeable staff can give you information and technology assistance to make a great consumer purchase. 

Already have an e-reader?  Your library can assist you in downloading eBooks from our Overdrive or Netlibrary collection.  All you need is a valid Fountaindale library card and free downloadable software to start using your e-reader today.

Not sure which collection of books to choose from?  Overdrive provides popular fiction and non-fiction titles and authors such as The Girl who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest by Stieg Larsson, Happy Ever After by Nora Roberts, and The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook: a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal by Ben Mezrich.  Although we share a number of books with other libraries in our consortium, the Fountaindale Public Library District has purchased multiple copies of best-selling books.  Plus, we’re constantly acquiring new and interesting titles to add to our site.  You’ll find something great to read with our Overdrive collection.  Don’t forget to login with your Fountaindale Public Library District library card!   http://emedialibrary.lib.overdrive.com/9E8C3F39-3FC7-4F2B-98A6-00FA67644CF4/10/384/en/Default.htm

For assistance with middle school, high school, college, and professional research, grab your library card and download a book from our Netlibrary archive at http://www.netlibrary.com/.   This website offers a vast collection of non-fiction materials which are available in audiobook, eBooks (which are for computer viewing and cannot be downloaded to an e-reader) and downloadable (good for e-reader use) eBooks.  There are fantastic titles for school term papers, professional development and personal use resources on this site, including A Handbook for Teaching & Learning in Higher Education by Heather Fry, Applying Knowledge Management: Techniques for Building Corporate Memories by Ian Watson, and  Nolo’s Guide to Social Security Disability: Getting & Keeping Your Benefits by David Morton.

As our library is closing for the move to our new building on Monday, February 7th, now is the time to visit the Adult and Teen Services Information Desk and let our knowledgeable staff help you with your eBook questions.  There are free handouts and information available at the library and online at our eResources homepage: http://www.fountaindale.org/component/content/article/4/287-e-readers-and-content-are-here.html .

Keeping you up-to-date in an eBook world,

Deb
