By participating in the Big Library Read, you can join a global movement of passionate readers and library customers who support the availability of eBooks at your local library.
The Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project is in the midst of a multi-year study of the changing role of public libraries in the digital age. If you check out or download eBooks from the library, they'd love for you to take their online survey and tell them about your experiences. The survey will be confidential your identity will not be shared.
If you got a fancy new Nook or Kindle for Christmas but aren't sure how to make it work with Denver Public Library's downloadable books, fret not! The Community Technology Center is providing FREE instruction to show you how it's done.
Come to one of our eMedia classes at the Central Library, or attend a Tech Petting Zoo at your neighborhood branch library to learn how to find, check out, download and transfer books to your reader.
