George Memorial Library now has two computers that are designated specifically as “download stations” for downloading e-books to e-readers. Previously, patrons could not download the library’s eBooks to their electronic reading devices on library computers because of security settings on the computers.
The new download stations enable readers to download eBooks from the library’s OverDrive collection to a wireless device, such as a smartphone, e-reader, or flash drive, while the patron is still in the library. To connect the wireless device to the computer for the download, patrons should bring their own USB cable for that device.
The download stations are located only in the audiovisual department on the second floor of George Memorial Library, 1001 Golfview in Richmond. This new capability is available at this location only.
For more information, call the library’s Public Information Office at 281-341-2677.
