Kindle Is At My Library!

September 23, 2011 Whitney Uncategorized 3 Comments

My library supports Overdrive allowing ereaders to checkout books and this week they just added Kindle!  I was super excited to hear this as I have mention my library is moving and this option will help fill the void.  The site actually reminds me a lot of Netflix as you can hold/save/checkout “books”.  What’s the best part?  No late fees, the book disappears on its own after said due date.  Of course, I had to download one, the process was relatively easy, because I have an older version I had to connect via a USB cable (which did you know the kindle charger turns into a USB cable?  It was like magic when my mom figured that out for me).  Anyway, after watching the “how to” video numerous times and a little frustration with my tech-imparedness, tada, I have checked-out my first book, The Giver by Lois Lowry one of my favorites growing up.  Once I got the hang of it, its very easy to do and can’t wait to check out more soon!

  1. I am really excited about getting to check library books out on my Kindle too! The convenience is great and it will be nice not to have to worry about when a book is due.

    We were all happy at my library when this finally went through — we've been waiting and waiting for Overdrive and Kindle to work things out so they could make this happen! 🙂

    Mine too! I'm so excited that Kindle is finally allowing libraries to lend their books. And I'm glad this helps with your library-moving-away dilemma. It all just makes me want to cheer.
