How 12 Leading Public Libraries Are Handling Patrons with New E-Readers after Christmas

I read a few articles on the fact that public libraries were bracing for a lot of patrons with new Christmas e-readers, but I wasn’t really seeing the specifics. Via social media, I asked several public libraries how they would handle patrons with new e-readers after Christmas (#eReaderXmas). Here is what I found:

 

Norwalk Public Library in Fairfield County, CT answered that they were having two classes on 12/29: one for Kindle and one for Apple devices.

DC Public Library in Washington, DC answered that they had tutorials, guides, and a plethora of information on what is available.

Spokane County Library District in Spokane County, Washington has extra staff for the holiday week and has scheduled e-book classes in January.

Kitchener Public Library in Kitchener, Ontario holds clinics. These include a holiday clinic, plus monthly clinics year-round. Last year’s holiday clinic had 85 people in attendance. KPL’s online presence for e-readers is impressive. See more here:

The Enoch Pratt Free Library, the public library system of Baltimore City, has a large marketing campaign to promote its e-library.

New York Public Library has a ton of programming: http://www.nypl.org/events/calendar?keyword=Ebook. 116 classes are scheduled:

San Francisco Public Library has 26 e-reader classes on its calendar:

The Sacramento Public Library in Sacramento, CA provides one-on-one technical help available and scheduled e-reader programming. Additionally, Sacramento Public Library is now offering 3M and OverDrive.

Berkeley Public Library in Berkeley, CA provides support for popular e-readers, and the e-book provider held a seminar to discuss the new technology.

The Public Library of Cincinnati & Hamilton County in Cincinnati, OH has hands-on workshops and e-reader “petting zoos.” Cincinnati has done great marketing on this. See more at http://www.cincinnatilibrary.org/news/2012/ereadersholidays.html:

Dallas Public Library in Dallas, TX has staff to help in all 28 locations, and they’ve purchased hundreds of titles specifically for e-readers.

Queens Library in Queens, New York City offers free classes all year on how to download free e-books and apps and use e-readers.

 

You can read about other things that these important libraries are doing at Library Science Daily. I publish it every morning (even on holidays).

 

Did I fail to mention your public library e-reader program? Leave a comment!
