The Normandy Senior Living Community has gone digital!

With the purchase of 20 Nooks, residents of the Rocky River Senior Living Community can “sign out” a Nook, the same way they can sign out a library book. The Nook makes reading a lot lighter and brighter.

Author R.C. Durkee led a book discussion at The Normandy on Tues.,  January 20, where she discussed her book, “Rum Run,” which accounts prohibition-era stories of smuggling on the Great Lakes.

Weighing only 7.48 oz., a Nook can be easily held with one hand. The text adjustment allows for enlarging the print and the screen can be adjusted as well.

“No one should feel intimidated by technology,” advises Jennifer Lee of Normandy Activities. “We welcome anyone from the community to come in and learn how to use a Nook or an iPad.”

The Normandy offers complimentary Nook and iPad classes to the community on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from noon-1 p.m. Please phone (440) 333-5401.

Author R.C. Durkee discovered many of the members of the Normandy book group did read her book via a Nook. Stories like that of a smuggler who was shot by the Coast Guard back in the 1920’s and fell on the throttle control make for an entertaining read. Avon Lake residents hurried to the shore line to watch the out-of-control boat circle the waters before crashing into the breakwall.

The Normandy Senior Living Community sits on 33 beautiful wooded acres along the shores of Lake Erie at 22701 Lake Road, Rocky River. Please phone 440-333-5401.
