Want to read anywhere on your mobile device? Having trouble locating those downloaded ebooks? Eager to flip through a magazine on your tablet? This one-hour class will show you the basics of downloading eBooks and eAudioBooks using Libby, the new OverDrive app. We will also explore RBDigital, the app that lets you borrow (and keep!) your favorite magazines in digital format. Many newer tablets and iPads have high resolution displays, so digital magazine photos are crystal clear with brilliant colors.

Northeast Writing Group

Northeast Writing Group

Thursday, August 24, 2017, 6:30 pm

They say writing is a solitary task. (That's true.) But sometimes you need the energy of a warrior and the inspiration of a teacher to continue, to overcome a block, to make it to the last sentence of your work. No matter what you're working on (fiction, non-fiction, poetry), join Rez (Library Associate with an MA in Creative Writing from Johns Hopkins University) for an evening of writing, every Thursday from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m., in the conference room on the mezzanine level. It takes one sentence a day to keep the writer's block away.
