Help with Kindle?
There are, in fact, classes at both of the area's public libraries. Both also offer personal help for Kindles and many other electronic devices.
Visit Spring Lake District Library, 123 E. Exchange St., and ask their friendly staff for help on how to use your new Kindle, and for downloading books and magazines. Some are free!

Loutit District Library offers free one-on-one half-hour sessions with a reference librarian. They are knowledgeable about most kinds of e-readers. Call the library's Adult Information Desk at 616-842-5560, ext. 214, to set up an appointment.
The staff at the Grand Haven library, 407 Columbus Ave., will also help you learn how to download free library e-books and magazines.
