Got a Nook for Christmas? Want to read eBooks on your iPhone? We can show you!

Puzzled over eBooks?

Did you know that you can still check out eBooks and place holds, even when the library is closed? We have a large collection of eMedia -- downloadable eBooks, audio eBooks and eFlicks (movies) -- available on your portable device or home computer 24/7. The Community Technology Center is providing FREE instruction to show you how it's done!

The Community Technology Center is offering several eMedia classes in January that will teach you things like how to download library eBooks to your new Nook or to access eMedia from your Droid! With upgrades to the library's services and temporary changes, there is no better time to take the plunge! Once you learn how to put eMedia on your portable devices, you will be able to check out library books from the comfort of your own home without packing up your kids or finding a parking place! Sound good? Bring your device -- eReader, MP3 player, iPhone, Android, laptop, etc.

Computer classes are back (and more)!

If you're not someone who looks forward to happy endings, but are more the type who appreciates a film in which there can be no happy ending, El secreto de sus ojos might be right up your alley.

52 computers in the CTC and counting!

Getting Started With Overdrive Media Console

OverDrive iPhone app and Denver Public Library audio books -- at last!

I just discovered the OverDrive Media Console application for my iPhone! Now it's possible to find, download and listen to audio books without plugging your phone into a computer. This is nice if you're like me and don't want to haul around a laptop everywhere you go. Awesome. It's available at the iTunes Store for free! Add the OverDrive application to your iPhone or iTouch first, then start shopping!
