Tablets, e-readers, e-book borrowing demo Saturday at Bellingham library


BELLINGHAM - People can see and try out tablets and e-readers from various vendors, and learn how they can use a virtual library to read books for free, during a tech expo Saturday, Dec. 7, at the Bellingham Public Library.

Staff from Village Books, Barnes & Noble, TD Curran and Best Buy will bring and demonstrate how to use various tablets and e-readers - and what the difference is between the two. Brands demonstrated will include Kobo, iPad, Nook and Kindle.

Library staff will show how to use the Washington Anytime Library, an e-book service that's free to area library card holders. That library has more than 19,000 e-books and audio books for reading devices.

The free event runs 1 to 3:30 p.m. at the Central Library, 210 Central Ave.
