eReader Open Labs Coming to a Buffalo & Erie County Public Library Near You

Thinking about buying an eReader or Tablet computer or wondering how to use the one you already have? The Buffalo & Erie County Public Library System can help! Drop by an upcoming free “open lab,” to learn how to use your device or a “technology petting zoo” to test drive a variety of eReader types and learn more about them.  The training begins with a petting zoo this Thursday, October 18 from 10 a.m. – 1p.m. at the Orchard Park Public Library located at S-4570 South Buffalo Street. We’ll also have handouts with product reviews to assist and educate you about eReader options.

Participants for the open labs should bring their Library card (or apply for a free card) prior to attending the session. Participants will be assisted in the order of arrival.
