Your Library's Cheat Sheet for OverDrive Training

Your Library's Cheat Sheet for OverDrive Training

Article source: What is OverDrive for Libraries by TechBoomers.com. On May 18, TechSoup for Libraries is teaming up with TechBoomers' Steve Black for a webinar Digital Skills for OlderAdults: Teaching Technology. We thought we'd give a sneak peek at some of the training TechBoomers provides for libraries, such as this "how-to" article on OverDrive.  

Lots of people like to go out to their local libraries to borrow books and other forms of media, sometimes to learn something new, and other times just to be entertained. But it's not always easy to make it to the library; it may be closed, the weather may be inclement, or some people may generally have difficulty getting around.  Wouldn't it be nice if the library could come to you instead?

It's time for you to meet OverDrive. With OverDrive, you can borrow and enjoy materials from your local library or school's digital collection, including audiobooks, e-books, music tracks, and movies.  And all that you need to access it is a valid library card or student ID.

The public library means so much to so many different people: a place to check out the latest fantasy novel, a quiet workspace, or a center for picking up new tech skills. The library can also be a place to find a new job – though your patrons might not know that yet.

If, however, you're dealing with small spaces and limited staff and resources, yet want to provide technology training in your community, then please sign up!
