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.
