Author Brenda Lee Visits Arvada

by: 
Bethany

As part of our monthly book discussion group, join author Brenda Lee as she discusses Out of the Cocoon: A Young Woman's Courageous Flight from the Grip of a Religious Cult.

This book is a heart-wrenching, yet inspirational tale about the author's escape from a religious cult after enduring decades of dysfunction. Take the incredible journey with her as she survives stifling oppression as a child, physical and emotional abuse as a teenager, and the ultimate tragedy: the loss of her family once she becomes an adult. See how, like a butterfly, she changes the world within her, as her external world becomes increasingly unyielding. 

6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 7
Arvada Library

Help! I Don't Know How to Use My New eReader

by: 
Bethany

Did Santa, or someone else equally as special, bring you an eReader for the holidays? Are you at a loss as to how to make it go? The first thing I did when I got my Nook a couple years ago was break it. Save yourself the trouble I got into and take one of our many classes on eReaders this month. 

We're offering classes specifically for:

eBooks on Your Tablet Computer or Smart Phone
This includes the iPad, Kindle Fire, Nook Color and smart phones.You'll need to bring your device, library card number and iTunes account information. 

eBooks on the Kindle
This class is for users of Kindle Basic, Kindle DX, and Kindle Paperwhite (Kindle Fire users should attend the tablet class). You'll need to bring your Kindle and cables, library card number and Amazon account information.

eBooks on the Nook and Other Non-Kindle Basic eReaders
This class is for users of Nook, Nook Simple Touch, most Sony eReaders, and other similar devices (Nook Color users should attend the tablet class). If you’d like to try downloading during the class, please bring your device, it’s cables and your library card number. 

Good luck!
