Katonah Village Library Caters to E-Readers

KATONAH, NY-- The internet-savvy citizen now has a home at the Katonah Village Library. Members of the library can go online and download items such as novels and audio books to their electronic books or other gadgets.

Those who have a library card with the Katonah Library can download material for an allotted time from the comfort of their own home or at the library. The library, however, does not allow their computers to be used to download.

The services are available for an assortment of devices other than e-books, including iPhones, Blackberrys and Androids. Michelle Walter, head of public relations for the Village Library, is pleased the center can help every member of the community, tech-savvy or not.

“We’re happy to offer our services our patrons need now. We want to move up with the times,” she said. “Because if there is a demand in our community, we want to be the place for them to come and help them adapt to the new technology.”

Walter said the library has already catered to a variety of people, from those who know what they’re doing to those who have barely picked up an e-book before.

“Our job is to help patrons when they come in with their e-readers and show them how to download," she said. "The more tech-savvy patrons do it online themselves through the Westchester library system. For them, we’re preaching to the choir.”

Walter and the rest of the library staff are hoping their addition will help the new wave of readers.

“We’re hoping that more and more titles come online so we can offer them to the public.”
