Hamersly Library lobby
The eReader Petting Zoo allows you time in a non-commercial setting to poke around several brands and formats of eBook devices and to discuss their pros and cons. (Reminder: holiday shopping is imminent.)
We’ll have a variety of devices for you to play with
- Kindle, 6″ E Ink Display
- NOOK Simple Touch with GlowLight
- The new Kindle Fire HD 7″
- Google Nexus 7
- iPad 2
Also, we will schedule our ebooks and ereader workshop in January, during which we’ll detail how to download library ebooks onto your smartphone, tablet, or eReader (possibly a brand new one from the holidays?). These will be reprised from the workshop first held during Faculty Week 2012, but we’ll have focused sessions for iPad/iPhone owners, for Kindle owners, and general sessions for owners of other devices. You can also consult our Ebooks @ WOU guide and consult with us if you have problems.
Game Nights continue at the library!
Join in the fun Friday night, November 6, room 107, 6-8 p.m., for Guitar Hero 5, Wii Sports & Wii Play, and Mario Cart, as well as our selection of board games. And if you need more enticement, attendees could win the drawing for a $15 iTunes gift card!
