Library staff can find three how-to videos related to Kindles and other e-readers. You can find them all in this how-to video menu or separately in the following links:

Patron-Facing Resources

The Getting Started resource, designed to be shared with patrons, contains many useful guides to various aspects of the digital library and the Libby app. There is a lengthy device-specific section with lots of how-to’s for Libby and Sora and how to use them on different devices and platforms. Staff may find these how-to’s helpful in their work, too!

The Did You Know? series spotlights features, tools, and other resources available to library staff, including patron-facing folks, to expand their know-how about Wisconsin’s Digital Library, OverDrive, Libby, and the Wisconsin Public Library Consortium (WPLC).
