Library, Lifelong to Partner for Digital Download Series

Tompkins County Public Library, in partnership with Lifelong Learning, will present a three-part series on accessing the Library’s digital resources, Thursdays, September 14, 21 and 28 from 10 a.m. to noon at Lifelong’s Court Street headquarters.

These free programs are designed to help older adults use smartphones, tablets, Apple products and personal computers to download books, magazines, music and videos from the Library’s collection.

Each class will focus on a different tool, with the September 14 session being devoted to OverDrive, the Library’s platform for providing access to thousands of free eBooks. The September 21 session will offer instruction on downloading dozens of full-content magazines through RBdigital, and the final session will introduce Hoopla, a streaming service for audiobooks, music, eBooks and videos.

Participants should bring their library card from TCPL or another Finger Lakes Library System Library. Library staff will also be available to register new cardholders before each session. Valid photo identification is required to sign-up for a card.

For more information, contact Tom Fredette at or (607) 272-4557 extension 271.
