If you need any assistance with eBook services, you’re in luck!

This Tuesday (Sept 16) from 10AM to 3PM the tour which showcases Overdrive, the free eBook service available through the London Public Library will be at the Cherryhill Village Mall.

Communications Manager at the library, Ellen Hobin says the free event provides interactive demonstrations and instructions to help you download the libraries service to a variety of devices.

Hobin says the Digital Bookmobile is a 75-foot tractor trailer with all the digital equipment inside, and it is travelling around Canada and the United States.

Hobin says the event is for people who are already reading but want to optimize their skills, or those who are new to e-reading.

She tells the X they had over 140,000 e-books circulate last year, however Hobin feels that many people are also new to e-books.

Hobin says the tour came in 2010, however a lot has changed with technology since then.
