Did you know that the library offers free, one-on-one instruction for users of eReaders?

Are you hoping to give (or receive) a Nook, Kindle, Kobo, iPad or iPad mini this holiday season? If you (or your gift-ee) doesn’t know how to use one, what then? We can help!

Library patrons can call (330) 688-3295 ext. 4 to set up a 45 minute appointment for help with their eReader or similar electronic device.

A public library card is free!

Don’t have Internet at home? Or is your computer, laptop, or printer broken? Students need a library card in good standing (fines below $5) in order to access the library’s free high-speed internet terminals and to print out hard copies for assignments.
