June is National Audio Book Month, and the Fond du Lac Public Library is celebrating by giving out free ear buds to kids and free car-adapter cords to adults when they check out Playaway books. Playaways are MP3-like devices loaded with just one book that can be paused, forwarded, reversed – run just like any digital player.
1. Do I have to be in the library to download e-books to my e-reader?
No. Most items can be downloaded wirelessly to your device from Overdrive anywhere there's a wireless connection.
2. Can I do it all from my device?
That depends on what device you own. Currently the e-readers that do not require a computer are: Kindle Fire and Fire HD, iPad, Smart phones, Nook HD and Nook Color and Android tablets. You must have your own computer to download to other e-readers.
Are you smart? Do you have smart friends? Do you like to have a good time while helping a great cause? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, the 13th Annual Team Trivia is the event for you.
Teams of four can sign up now for the March 5 and March 7 event at Whispering Springs Golf Club. Team members pay $25 for adults and $15 for teens (ages 13-18). The event includes a cash bar and a $12.50 per person Pulled Pork Sandwich dinner. Dinner is served at 5:30 p.m., accompanied by live music from Daryl Rogers, and the quizzing begins at 6:30 p.m.
