Freeloading Librarians to Offer Training at Starbucks

The Tompkins County Public Library and Ithaca’s Seneca Street Starbucks will partner September 13 for a demonstration by the “Freeloading Librarians,” a group of library staff members offering instruction, advice, and support for downloading free eBooks and audiobooks to mobile devices. 

The demonstration will be held from 1 to 2 p.m. and include personal assistance for downloading books to iPads, iPods, Kindles, Nooks and smartphones through the Finger Lakes Library System’s free Overdrive Media Console application. 

Participants should bring their library card or sign up for a free card at the event. Photo identification with a current, local address is required to receive a library card.

This program is part of an ongoing series of “Freeloading Librarian” programs designed to increase digital confidence and awareness among readers.

Additional demonstrations will be held:

  • September 20 from noon to 1:30 p.m. at The YMCA of Ithaca
  • September 26 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. at Alternatives Federal Credit Union   
  • October 16 from noon to 1 p.m. at The History Center
