Downloadable eBooks

This tweet from Harris County Public Library makes a good point:  eBooks are convenient when traveling, especially when real estate (i.e. luggage space) is at stake.

Downloadable eBooks are available 24 / 7 at our eHCPL site.

Not sure how it all works? Kingwood Library is offering an evening eBooks for iPad class on April 19th from 6:30 PM- 8:00 PM. You can register for the class here.
