Get started with your eBook reader!

Did you get an eBook reader as a holiday gift? Wondering what to do with it? Wonder no more – the San Antonio Public Library wants to help!

From January 10 through early February, the Library will offer free eReader clinics to help you get the most out of your eBook reader. Starting with the basics, you’ll soon be using your reader to explore the entire Dewey Decimal System, as well as fiction!

…and a chance to add to your movie and audiobook library…
With the increasing popularity of new formats such as downloadables, DVDs and CDs, items on tape are not being checked out as often – as a matter of fact, books on tape and movies on VHS account for less than 1% of our annual circulation. So we’re giving you the chance to snap some up at great prices, and help the Library too!

On Saturday and Sunday, January 8 and 9, the Friends of the San Antonio Public Library are holding a special sale of audiobooks on tape and movies on VHS. Proceeds will benefit the Library.
