7:30 p.m.

We know that downloading library e-books and audiobooks can be confusing, even for the tech-savvy among us. That is why we offer personalized assistance on a drop-in basis.

Need help checking out digital materials, downloading them, or transferring library media to your e-book reader, tablet, smartphone, or MP3 player?

Stop by the Georgetown Neighborhood Library on Wednesday evenings, and we'll get you sorted out. Bring your device and your library card with you.

Also, bring your laptop if you need help downloading onto a Nook or an MP3 player that is not also a smartphone.

Can't make it on Wednesday evenings? Email georgetownlibrary@dc.gov or call 202-727-0232 to set up an appointment at a more convenient time.
