Drive by our front entrance today, and you'll see that our master naturalists have really been at...
Come by the front of the library at the end of next week, and you may not recognize the place.
Yesterday morning a senior citizen came into the library clutching a brand new Kindle close to her chest.
"I just bought this, and I have an e-book I want to buy," she said.
After asking a few questions, I found out that:
She does not have a home computer.
She does not know how to use a computer.
She does not, then, have an e-mail account.
And she has not registered her Kindle and has no account with Amazon.
So, together, we got her an e-mail at Google. We registered her Kindle with Amazon. We set up her Amazon account, and we downloaded the e-book she wanted to buy, then pulled it up on her Kindle screen so she could get started.
The process took a little less than an hour.
I worry, though, that she didn't really understand the whole Amazon experience. I bet I see her again before the end of the week.
But, that's OK. She was happy. And that's the whole point.
