Williamsport, Pennsylvania – Founded in 2004 by reader and author Rita Towes, e-Book Reading Week promotes the benefits of e-books and encourages book lovers to try them. It is also an opportunity to promote writers and their works.
The James V. Brown Library, 19 E. Fourth St., encourages readers to participate all week, March 6-12.
Celebrate eBook Reading Week by browsing the library’s eBook collection, checking one out, and trying out eBooks.
To access eBooks through Libby, visit https://libbyapp.com/library/ebranch2go or select “Online Resources” on the library’s website at jvbrown.edu. There you will also see a link for hoopla, where Brown Library customers can download books, music, movies and more through https://www.hoopladigital.com.
“These sites are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to respond to reader requests,” said Sue Mayshock, audiovisual specialist at the Brown Library. “We want customers to visit us, but they can choose to download a bestseller to their device and enjoy the electronic version without leaving home.”
Mayshock also offers technology support with your device by appointment at the Brown Library by calling 570-326-0536.
Share what you read using the social media hashtags #JVBLreads and #eBookLove.
This is one of the many ways the library supports the PA Forward initiative by providing information literacy learning opportunities.
