Desmond-Fish to offer crash course in downloading free books

The Desmond-Fish Library in Garrison will present a program called “Get to Know Your eReader” at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 29. If you already own an electronic book reader such as a Kindle, Kobo Reader or Nook or get as a gift over the holidays, the class will help you get to know the device and how to load it with free eBooks, audiobooks, and (new for 2016) digital magazines from the library.

The free program is part of an ongoing series of technology clinics for adults held throughout the year at Desmond-Fish and taught or organized by Cybrarian Pam McCluskey.  She also offers one-on-one computer help sessions on Friday and Sunday afternoons. For more information visit or call 845-424-3020.​ The library is located at 472 Route 403, at the corner of Route 9D.
