iPad mini up for grabs!

By MICHELE NATIONS

They are at it again!

Tickets are available for an Apple iPad mini from the Friends of the Boyce Ditto Library.

Because of the interest shown in the raffle last fall, the Friends of the Boyce Ditto Library (FOBDL) are again selling tickets for an Apple iPad mini with the special cellular capability. Tickets may be purchased from a member of the FOBDL or at the Boyce Ditto Public Library at 2300 SE Martin Luther King Junior St. Tickets are a $5 each

There’s not much time left. The drawing for the iPad mini, valued at $459, will take place on Tuesday, April 16, at 8 p.m. in the library’s meeting room at the end of the Friends’ book sale being held that day.

When trying to decide on which tablet to get for the raffle, Janice Ellis, treasurer for the FOBDL, provided all of the pro’s and con’s of all the available tablet models. The iPad mini was the top choice because it will allow the winner to read books, play games, access the Internet and check email.

The over 275,000 apps available for the larger iPad will work on this smaller version, too. Its small size is also a plus.

The mini is black, has 16 GB of memory, and the ability to use either Wi-Fi or a cellular data plan connection, currently set up for AT&T. If the winner prefers a different data plan, the mini can be exchanged at Best Buy for one that will fit the new owner’s needs. The data plan is not included.

The iPad mini would be a wonderful gift for a special someone or for yourself! Your purchase of a ticket from the Friends (a 501c3 tax-exempt entity) will also be a gift to the library and the community for special projects and events.

For more information, call 940-328-7880 for more details.
