"GADGETS & GEAR" AT LIBRARY

Residents with questions about their laptop, tablet, e-reader, smartphone or any other electronic devices can bring them to the Gadgets & Gear Session at the Royalton Hartland Community Library for answers. This hands on help session will be held Saturday, April 30 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

With the new digital services offered by the library, especially the latest called “Hoopla” that offers free music, eBooks, TV shows, movies and comic books via digital download, learning how to use electronic devices is more important than ever.

Sara Taylor, an e-mobile trainer from the Nioga Library System’s BTOP Program, will be at the library to answer questions about these services, and can show how to use just about any electronic device that is brought to the session. 

Interested residents are encouraged to bring in their own devices and their charging cords and ask questions about them. Attendees will be able to download digital items from Hoopla as well as eBooks from Overdrive and eMagazines from Zinio right at the session so they will know how to use these services available at no charge to library patrons through the Nioga system.

As the Gadgets & Gear programs are well attended, registration for the upcoming April 30 session is requested.

The Royalton Hartland Community Library periodically offers sessions like Gadgets & Gear and residents are encouraged to check the library’s website at www.RoyHartCommunityLibrary.com or stop by 9 S. Vernon Street in Middleport for program information, or they can call the library at 735-3281.

LIBRARY TO HOLD CRAIGSLIST SEMINAR

Garage sale season is coming and many people may want to buy or sell their unwanted or unused items online using Craigslist. 

Craigslist is a classified advertisements website with sections devoted to jobs, housing, personals, for sale, items wanted, services, community, gigs, résumés, and even discussion forums that began in 1995. More than 60 million people use Craigslist to buy or sell items each month in the US alone.

Now you can learn how to buy and sell your stuff on Craigslist.org at a special technology help session on Monday, April 18 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Royalton Hartland Community Library, 9 S. Vernon Street in Middleport.

Knowledgeable staff from the Nioga BTOP program will show how to create a listing, upload pictures and contact buyers and sellers.

The library will provide the laptop computers; participants just have to bring their own smartphone or camera (with cables) to learn how to upload pictures for a listing.

Space is limited for this class, and attendance is free, so registration is required. Interested participants can register by phone, online or at the Library Desk.

More information about the library’s other programs or to register for the Craigslist training session, please call 716-735-3281 or visit www.RoyHartCommunityLibrary.com.
