Program Description

Learning Libby

Winter is coming, and what better way to spend a cold, dreary day than at home reading? Learn how to check out eBooks and eAudiobooks without ever leaving your house with Libby -- one of the library's online reading resources. In this class, you will learn how to create a Libby account, customize your settings, find the perfect book, check that book out, and more! 

Laptops will be provided during class, but everyone is encouraged to bring their own device if they have one -- tablet, Kindle, iPad, laptop, or phone. 

This in-person program will take place in the Community Room on the first floor of the Library. 

Online registration for this program can be completed below. You may also register by calling 309.590.6168 or by visiting the Adult Services Desk at the Library. 

This same program will also be offered on Wednesday, November 17, at 1:30pm. If you'd prefer to register for that program, visit bit.ly/bpllibby1117.
