Public Libraries in the Age of Overdrive

We have been reluctant to give my mother in law an eReader because of her lack of technical expertise and internet access. She and her husband are voracious readers and frequently visit their public library to borrow books and DVDs. We called that library to see if they were eBook friendly. To my delight, they...

1) have public wifi
2) participate in overdrive
3) have people on staff to help patrons use eReaders

They assured us that many of their most technophobic patrons are enjoying ebooks and tablets.

We decided to get her a Fire HD. If you have been reluctant to give the gift of technology to a 'special' someone, you might find their local library eager to help.
