E-Reader Petting Zoo and Q&A

This training session is designed
-for those who are thinking about purchasing an e-reader but not sure which one to buy,
-for those who have an e-reader but not sure how to use it or want to know how to download an e-book from the library,
-for those who would just like to know more about new technology.

Please join us in the main library's computer lab on the third floor, every Friday from 1:00 pm-2:00 pm. Our e-book librarians will answer all your questions and show you how to download a library's e-book. You will have an opportunity to try out Kindle, Nookcolor, Kindle Fire and I-pad.

For people who can't make Friday's 1-2 session, please come to our one-on-one eBook Help every Wednesday evening from 5:30pm-7:00pm, or drop by anytime to ask to speak to one of our ebook librarians.

(Note: If you have questions regarding your devices, please bring your device or laptop so we can walk you through the process. )

T&G.com: Worcester Public Library staff offer e-reader workshops on Fridays


  1. The e-reader petting zoo really helped me to decide to buy an e-reader. I came in thinking that I wanted one kind but decided on another after a first-hand experience. Thank you, Worcester Public Library!

  2. Dear Ping and Colleagues: I'm just back from a trip to your drop in workshop on e-readers (1/6/12; 1-2). You did a great job with the many different patrons and devices that you worked with. Thanks, Patty

  3. Could you perhaps offer this class at different times and on different days for those of us who are not able to get to the friday 1-2 session-perhaps 1 in the early evening for those getting out of work or even on saturday??? thank you

    1. We do have one-on-one help offered on Wednesday evenings between 5:30 pm -7:00pm. If a Wednesday evening does not work for you. You can also come in anytime when the library is open to ask to speak to one of our ebook librarians. Thanks for your suggestion. WPL REF
