Altogether, 43% of Americans age 16 and older have read long-form writing in digital format as of December 2011 – “The Rise of E-Reading” Report, Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project, April 2012

There’s no denying it; e-books and e-readers are growing in popularity every day, and they’ve gone from nice-to-haves to must-haves in library collections. If your library is just getting started delivering these digital resources or you’ve hired new staff that needs to get up to speed, attend the informative one-hour PLA webinar, “E-Books 101: A Look at Devices, Platforms, and Training Ideas,” Tuesday, April 17 at 1:00 p.m. Central. Instructor Lynnanne Pearson, manager of adult popular services, Skokie (Ill.) Public Library, will provide an overview of e-readers and lending platforms available to libraries. She’ll also provide some insights to get you started on training library staff and building an e-reader and e-book service at your library.

“E-Books 101: A Look at Devices, Platforms, and Training Ideas” is the first in the four-part, e-book webinar series, “Public Librarian’s Guide to E-Books: A PLA Webinar Series.” This series features something for libraries at every stage of e-book adoption. Save when you register for all four webinars!
