Downloading Audiobooks and eBooks with Overdrive

Apple TechThe Newcastle Public Library is showing off the library’s resources for downloadable materials at the program “Downloading Audiobooks and eBooks with Overdrive,” which takes place at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 3, at the library.

The workshop is an opportunity for learning how to use the library’s downloadable content through the service OverDrive. Participants are encouraged to bring their mobile device so they get a hands-on chance to learn how to download materials with their own device.

Devices that can be used to download books from the library include eReaders, smartphones, computers or iPads. Participants should bring their library card, email address, and email password to the program.

Stories and more fill the air during September

The Newcastle Public Library has expanded its story time offerings this fall, with activities for children and even the whole family on the schedule.

Pre-K Story Time, for ages birth through Pre-K and their caregivers, is scheduled at 10 a.m. each Tuesday in September, on Sept. 1, 8, 15, 22 and 29. The story times feature stories, songs and other activities for young minds.

Twice during the month, the library presents a Family Story Time, at 10 a.m. on Saturdays, Sept. 5 and 19. This will feature activities for all ages to enjoy together.

Registration is not required for any of the programs.
