Course Objectives:

The Pioneer Library System’s Virtual Library has been conducting classes on downloadable audiobooks and ebooks since January 2010. Initially we were lucky to get one staff person’s child to show up for class—and now our “Getting to Know Your eReader” courses are standing room only. So how do we do it? This webinar looked briefly at how we started conducting these classes—staff, materials, and equipment involved—as well as the best practices for promoting, designing, and carrying out eReader classes for the masses in your community.
