If your gifts include a device of the eReading sort, the Trenton Veterans Memorial Library has a collection of titles that you can borrow to get your eReading adventure started.
The first thing you need to do is go to the library website and click on the OverDrive icon located in the bottom right square in the center of the homepage.
From here, you will be taken to the OverDrive website where you can download eBooks and audiobooks. Be sure to have your library card and personal identification (PIN) number handy.
Now you can browse through thousands of eBooks and audiobooks. When you are ready to make a selection, click the book you want to read. Next, click the format in which you'd like to read the book or that matches your particular device. You will then be prompted to verify your library card number and PIN number.
While the library does not offer workshops to learn how to use your new gadget, there are ways to get the information you need.
- Library staff recommend people call the OverDrive help line 216-573-6886 for click-by-click directions from a knowledgeable operator.
- There is also a text tutorial available on the library homepage, which will take you to BeingRuth.com. On the bottom left side of the library homepage you can find a link that reads, "Need some help with downloading e-books to your e-reader? Click here for a tutorial."
