People have been asking when they will be able to download library books to their Kindle eReader for a while now. Before this week we've had ebooks available for the iPad, Nook, Sony Reader and a number of other devices. The wait is over. Ebooks for Amazon's Kindle eReader are now available.
Ebooks are checked out and downloaded online through MyMediaMall. They get checked out for 14-days and at the end of the 14 days, they just stop working. There is no need to return anything (You might want to delete them off your device). There are currently over 4000 titles available for the Kindle and other eReaders.
MyMediaMall also has eAudiobooks to listen to using your iPod, or MP3 player.
There are a few steps involved getting your eReader set up. We can help you with that. We offer the MyMediaMall Open Lab on most Thursdays this fall (just drop in, no registration needed).
People really love their readers. They are light, easy to use and can hold numerous books. You can enlarge the print too, making them ideal for large-print users. If you would like to try using an e-reader we have a limited number available for checkout. We have both Sony Readers and Nooks. They are preloaded with a number of popular titles. Stop by the Readers' Services desk on the 3rd floor for more information (847-376-2840).
