Friends of Orange County Library will present a session titled “e-books for Libraries: Good, Bad or Indifferent?” from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. May 5 at the Orange County Main Library in Hillsborough.
The program is free and will address what e-book use means for the library.
It will also discuss the publishing and sale of e-books and how those aspects of the market affect the library’s ability to provide them to the community.
Attendees will also learn about the e-book lending mechanisms at the Orange County Library and see the various e-book readers that are available.
Dani Brecher, adult services intern at the library and Chad Haefele, emerging technologies librarian at the UNC Academic Affairs Library, will present at the event.
