2013 Outstanding Program for Seniors

eBook Classes at Senior Centers

Awarded by the Virginia Public Library Director's Association

Henrico County Public Library has maintained continuous community outreach, especially through our Bookmobile, now known as Mobile Library Service. In their regular visits Bookmobile staff saw an increasing demand to support the needs of its senior patrons’ need for eBooks from the libraries. In response, Bookmobile staff partnered with our Emerging Technologies Librarian, Matt Phillips, to provide classes and one-on-one help with library eBooks. Beginning in January of 2012 Matt and Bookmobile staff made special visits to senior centers in the county who were most interested in learning about library eBooks and how to check them out on their devices.
