PRINCETON — Princeton Public Library is offering programs for a number of interests.

For readers who are just discovering the mobility and convenience of digital books and media, there will be a tutorial night on e-readers with one-on-one help from volunteers and staff at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. Participants should bring their device (Kindle, Nook, iPad, smartphone). For those wanting to learn more about various devices, the library will be able to demonstrate several models. Both OMNI Libraries (Online Media of Northern Illinois Libraries), for e-books and digital audiobooks, and Zinio, an online digital newsstand for magazine titles, will be covered. Both require a Princeton Public Library card to use.

At 6 p.m. Wednesday, the library will host a organizational meeting of the Nerd Club, a new opportunity for niche genre fans of anime, manga, Sci Fi and fantasy books, television, and films, comic books/graphic novels, and RPG and trading card games to share their interests and explore other fan areas that have cross-over appeal. This first meeting will include an explanation of the library’s online catalog and how to use it to access materials about areas of interest, followed by a screening of a classic anime film. Future meetings will focus on interests of participants as the group decides.

At 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Ron McCutchan will lead a Valentine’s card paper craft workshop that will focus on pop-up cards and sewn cards. These crafts are appropriate for ages 11 and up. All materials will be supplied.

All programs at the Princeton Public Library are free and open to all. The Princeton Public Library is located at 698 E. Peru St., Princeton. For more information, go to www.theprincetonlibrary.org or call 815-875-1331.
