Newport Beach Public Library invites the community to enhance their technological literacy at Digital Saturday on Saturday, November 16, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Central Library, 1000 Avocado Avenue, Newport Beach.
Digital Saturday will showcase the library’s digital resources, including eBooks, eAudiobooks, eMagazines, and online databases, as well as explore the Media Lab, Sound Lab and Tech Toys available for loan. Staff will be on hand to introduce customers to the library’s eBranch and to show them how to download eBooks and magazines to mobile devices; access valuable research materials. A current library card and Google or Apple ID password is needed for one-on-one instruction on downloading ebooks and magazines to personal mobile devices.

The 42-foot long traveling exhibit provides devices, internet connectivity and expert guidance to the local library's digital collection of ebooks and audiobooks. This traveling exhibit first launched in 2008 in Central Park, New York, and has since traveled more than 233,000 miles and welcomed over 240,000 visitors at over 1,000 events.
