Three workshops to assist residents with using the Yolo County Library’s free digital media download service will be held this month at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

“In addition to traditional print material, the library provides a variety of eBooks and eAudiobooks for download,” Yolo County Librarian Patty Wong said. “We invite patrons to learn more about this service by attending one of the workshops offered.”

From 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 8, the workshop will focus on how to use the service to download eBooks to a Kindle or the Kindle Reading App. Participants should bring their charged device, wireless laptop (optional), library card, USB cable and Amazon.com account sign-in and password. This workshop will be held in the Children’s Activity Room.

For Mac users, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 9, the workshop will focus on how to use the service to download eBooks or eAudiobooks to an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch. Participants should bring their charged device, library card, Apple ID and password, and Adobe Digital Editions ID and password (if they have one). This workshop will be held in the Children’s Activity Room.

From 11 a.m. to noon Saturday, Jan. 11, the workshop will focus on how to use the service to download eBooks to Android operating system devices. Participants should bring their charged device, wireless laptop (optional), library card, USB cable and Adobe Digital Editions ID and password (if they have one). This workshop will be held in the Blanchard Room.

Following demonstrations in each workshop, Yolo County Library staff will be available to answer questions. In addition to these sessions, volunteers are available from 12:30 to 2 p.m. at the Stephens Davis Branch Library on most Thursdays to assist with downloading materials from the library’s collection. This is a drop-in service; no appointment needed.

All workshops are free, no reservations are required. For more information, visit: www.yolocountylibrary.org or connect with the Yolo County Library on Facebook at www.facebook.com/yolocountylibrary.org.
