Borrowing OCL eBooks and Audio Books is just a click away, learn how at your local branch

Toms River Senior Librarians Matthew Willbergh and Shazia Zaman show how an electronic device works as part of a “petting zoo” display held on Jan. 16 in the foyer of the Toms River branch of the Ocean County Library.

Toms River Senior Librarians Matthew Willbergh and Shazia Zaman show how an electronic device works as part of a “petting zoo” display held on Jan. 16 in the foyer of the Toms River branch of the Ocean County Library.

It never hurts to ask for help and many Ocean County residents who utilize the services of the Ocean County Library are doing just that when they stop by their local branch to learn about their electronic devices.

The Ocean County Library continues to offer e-Reader training so that you can better use the features of you Kindle Fire, Nook, iPad, iPod, tablet and other devices.

For those seeking to learn how to download a book to your device, to navigate through the various websites that will bring you audio books and other information, we encourage you to contact your local branch for details.

Wendi Smolowitz, senior librarian, information services at the Manchester branch of the Ocean County Library heads several instruction programs for electronic devices each month.

She was joined by Reference Librarian Michelle Dupuis and Teen Librarian Elaine Menken on Jan. 14 with teaching patrons about their devices.

Patricia Laino of Manchester attended the Kindle Fire lesson and said she found the hour long program “very informative and very easy. I enjoyed all the individual attention we received.’’

“It is fascinating what you can do. You have to do it over and over again to get used to it but this was great,’’ Allan Hornstein of Manchester said following the class.

Anny Andersen, a resident of the Holiday City section of Toms River, attended the day’s program.

“I had a good time. I learned a lot from the one on one instruction. It was excellent and we had very good instructors,’’ Andersen said.

Those in attendance learned how to better use their Kindle Fire devices and the virtues of borrowing a book through the website e-Library. They learned how they could place books on hold, remove the icon from their Kindle Fire once the loaning period ends and the difference between an audio book and an e-Book.

Toms River Senior Librarians Matthew Willbergh and Shazia Zaman brought out several examples of electronic devices as part of a “petting zoo” display in the foyer of the Toms River branch on Jan. 16.

One curious 89-year-old patron stopped by the table to see what it was all about. He said he was a bit too old to start using an electronic device to read books but Shazia assured him that “you are never too old to learn and you may find it easier then you thought.’’

The pair spent several hours answering questions and demonstrating how the various devices work and how fast and easy it is to load a book onto those devices.

Training services are offered at each of our 21 branches. Contact your branch to learn when a training program is being held. Should you have a question, a representative of OCL will be happy to respond to your inquiry.

A FEW FAST FACTS ABOUT USING YOUR KINDLE FIRE

  • There is a limit of 5 eBooks that can be checked out at one time.
  • E-Books can now be renewed (once) . The “Renew” option will appear three days before a title’s expiration date. Simply click the word “Renew” to activate the renewal option.
  • You can decide how long you would like to borrow your e-Books and audiobooks by simply clicking the settings button at the top of the screen under “My Account” in e-LibraryNJ. Press the button for the number of days that you would like (7, 14, 21). Then click “Done.’’
  • Some publishers’ titles cannot be downloaded through your Kindle’s Wi Fi or cannot be read on a Kindle App. For these titles, or if your Kindle does not have Wi-Fi connectivity, you must download the book to your computer and transfer it to your Kindle by a USB cable.
