Franklin County Libraries are co-hosting a virtual training session on using Libby, the award-winning OverDrive reading app, on Tuesday, October 5 from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
With a library card, community members can download Libby and access a wide selection of popular eBooks and digital audiobooks, according to a press release from Arms Library Director Laurie Wheeler.
“It’s an amazing way to reach more people,” Wheeler said. “A person’s local library may be closed for the day, or it may be midnight and you’re in a big wake, or there may be a huge snowstorm. With Libby, you can access a multitude of reading and listening materials. And with our cities slowly striving for more even Internet access, more people will be able to use this service. “
In addition to the Arms Library in Shelburne Falls, the local libraries co-hosting the virtual training session are: MN Spear Memorial Library in Shutesbury, Tilton Library in South Deerfield, Erving Public Library, Dickinson Memorial Library in Northfield, Tyler Memorial Library in Charlemont, New Salem Public Library, S. White Dickinson Memorial Library in Whately, Sunderland Public Library, Griswold Memorial Library in Colrain, Warwick Free Public Library, Buckland Public Library, Cushman Library in Bernardston, and Belding Memorial Library in Ashfield.
