Learn to Download Library Kindle Books

The Library of the Chathams hosts a workshop for patrons Wednesday.

Navigating the world of e-books can confuse some patrons of the Library of the Chathams, especially when those books are library books which you can download directly to your e-reader ... and which will disappear once your loan expires.

To help patrons learn how to use their Kindles to rent library books, the library will host Mike Skarra, a teacher at the Adult School of Madison, the Chathams and Florham Park as he leads a workshop specifically for Kindle users.

The class is at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the library and requires registration. Anyone interested can sign up at the Circulation Desk or by calling (973) 635-0603.

Jay Marine, the director of product management for the Amazon Kindle, said, "Libraries are a critical part of our communities and we're excited to be making Kindle books available at more than 11,000 local libraries around the country."

Among the e-books available through the website are recent bestsellers such as "Fifty Shades of Grey" by EL James, "The Lucky Ones" by Nicholas Sparks, "Gone Girl" by Gilligan Flynn, "The Litigators" by John Grisham and "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" by Stieg Larsson.
