Did you get the latest e-reader for Christmas and need help learning how to use it? The Warner Public Library can help you for free.

The Warner Library in Clinton has a service right now that can assist anyone seeking help learning how to use their E-reader. Eric Monkman has been working for the library taking time to teach anyone how to use their Nook or Kindle. Librarian Paula Lopatik says the Nook and most recently the Kindle allow for patrons to check library books out via their e-readers, which is giving Monkman a chance to work with patrons on learning more about their devices.

Lopatik notes the demand for the services of Monkman are in pretty high demand, especially following the Christmas season. She says Monkman spends an hour teaching patrons about the e-readers.

Last year the library broke the 100-thousand mark for their circulation, and Lopatik says that is expected to be broken once again this year. She feels being able to borrow books on these new devices is helping their circulation numbers increase.

Lopatik adds, the checking a book out on the e-reader does require having a library card.
