Technology Talks will continue at the library at 9 a.m. on the third Saturday of the month. Dec. 19 will feature e-books. If you are curious about what they look like and how they are used, join us. We will be able to compare and contrast a Kindle and a Sony e-Reader. If anyone has the new Barnes and Noble reader, bring it along. We will also talk about downloadable books from Net Library, which are available from the VLS website.
