If you have an eReader, tablet or other mobile device then we can help.
Meet us at the Panera Bread every Thursday – from 2:30 pm to 4pm for free technology assistance with your mobile devices. Bring your device and your library card.
JVBL offers eBooks for downloading to your computer and transferring to a portable device such as a Barnes & Noble Nook, Kobo tablets, iPhone, iPad, Windows phone, Android™ phones and tablets or an Amazon Kindle and Kindle Fire (see complete list of compatible devices). The service is provided through OverDrive and is available to all JVBL library card holders.
eBooks can be read immediately on any device with an internet browser and all titles will automatically expire at the end of the lending period and be automagically returned for the next user. There are never any late fees!
