Get down this summer with free music, eBooks and eMagazines from Broward County Library! If you're still a novice at downloading or want to learn how to access even more great materials from Broward County Library, attend a free class in downloading materials and using eReaders.
Beginning in June, 11 Broward Library locations will host free workshops and classes in digitally downloading free hit music, bestselling eBooks and favorite magazines. Bring your own eReader or visit a technology “petting zoo” for hands-on experience on one of the library’s eReaders. Topics will include downloading magazines with Zinio Digital Newstand, which offers hundreds of free titles for downloading; iPad for beginners; downloading free music (five songs weekly!); and introduction to eReaders. The classes are free and open to the public.
