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! It gives students access to the library’s online homework databases for thousands of magazine and journal articles, photos, maps, and other information that supplement the school library’s databases, as well as the library’s young adult fiction and nonfiction collection.

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.
