and other "E" stuff you can do on-line
Sandra Ruth, LCCUG President
At our regular Feb 9 meeting LCCUG President, Sandee Ruth, will demonstrate Hoopla and some of the many other electronic resources available at our area public libraries. Lorain County has 8 different library systems, offering an array of various services to their patrons. You will see which digital services are available from which library. There are really exciting things that you can use from your computer, tablet, or smart phone.
One of the new resources is Hoopla ... now available at many of the local public libraries. All Hoopla content is available on demand. No holds necessary. No waiting. Users can watch or listen to their selections via online streaming or by temporarily downloading selections to a mobile device for viewing without an internet connection.
Hoopla's digital collection counts tens of thousands of titles - some 100,000 CDs; 10,000 audiobooks; 3,000 movies; and 500 TV series - and continues to expand. We will also learn about E-books, audiobooks, videos and movies from OneDrive as well as music from Freegal. Additionally discover how you can read entire current magazines on your favorite device.
Other incredible resources we will look at are automotive diagrams and repair information, great tools and apps to learn a new language, directories to look up the value of antiques, and genealogy and local history information. Learning games and books for children are impressive too. Learn of hundreds of free online courses that are available. These classes will teach you to use social media, create a webpage, how to use Microsoft Office, and so on. There are classes to help you in a career or with a personal interest. Let’s explore and make sure we know of all the kinds of on-line and “E” resources and programs that are available.
Please join us for this incredibly informative and interesting presentation. Bring a friend!!
As usual, there will be a question and answer period and refreshments provided. Please plan on attending this interesting meeting. THANK YOU!
