Take Your Library Wherever You Go

Well, the holiday shopping season is here in full force. Yesterday was the notorious Black Friday, when shoppers lined up at stores across the country to get deep discounts on computers, TVs, and all kinds of other great stuff. Next week is Cyber Monday, when online retailers offer similar deals without the inconvenience of even leaving the house.

This year some of the most popular sale items include eReaders and tablets. In fact, at Amazon.com, the popular 7″ Kindle Fire eReader/tablet is on sale right now for only $33.33.

If you pick up a Kindle this week, you’d be wise to start using Media on Demand, one of Eisenhower’s digital media services. Once you sign in with your Eisenhower Library card and PIN, connect your new Media on Demand account with your Amazon account and you can start borrowing eBooks to read on your Kindle right away.

If you don’t have a Kindle, don’t worry. Media on Demand eBooks come in lots of formats for many different eReaders, tablets, and even phones. Plus, there’s a free Kindle App available in the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store that will turn almost any mobile device into a high quality eReader compatible with library eBooks.

If you need help with your new device, we’re here to help. Stop by the Answers Desk or call 708-867-2299 and we’ll walk you through setting up accounts and borrowing books. Once you start using Media on Demand, you won’t believe the convenience. On next Black Friday, you’ll be sitting at home reading a best seller instead of going out in the cold to shop.
