Sterling LibraryTakes the Mystery Out of Digital Media

Baytown’s Sterling Municipal Library is helping to take the mystery out of digital media during their month-long Axis360 Awareness Month. Perfect for anyone who received a new phone or tablet over the holidays, or someone who just wants to learn how to make the most of their device, the program teaches how to download free eBooks and eAudiobooks. 

Axis360 is one of the library’s eBook and eAudiobook lending platforms which allow library patrons to check out and download books from anywhere with a Wi-Fi connection. 

“Download books in your pajamas, when the library is closed, and even from out of state -- all you need is your library card and your device. It’s very simple,” says Librarian Katie Beverly. “All you have to do is connect to Wi-Fi, download the app on your device, and you can start downloading ebooks on the spot. Axis360 Awareness Month is just one way for us to remind Baytown that books are accessible from anywhere, at any time. We are here to help you start downloading.”
Every day during January participants will have a new chance to spin the prize wheel and earn an entry into weekly prize drawings, including an iPad Mini or one of three Kindle Fires, and other great prizes.  Guests can begin earning entries by showing staff that they have downloaded Axis360 on their phone or tablet, and downloaded a book or audiobook.  Then stay tuned to Baytown Library’s Facebook page to find out how to earn entries each day. 
Sterling Library is also hosting special Tech Help Sessions on Wednesday, January 3, 5-7pm and again on Wednesday, January 10, 2-4pm. These sessions are a great way to learn more about what a tablet or eReader can do, and how to start downloading digital content.  Participanst can just bring their tablet and get ready to start downloading.
Prizes are made possible by Baker & Taylor Axis360. Participants can earn multiple entry forms during the month. Entry forms will remain in the prize drawing each week. Only one prize per person. For questions about Axis360 Awareness Month email Catherine.Beverly@Baytown.org.
