Good news for Kindle fans! Now Kindle users can enjoy borrowing e-books at Fresno County Public Library. The Library offers roughly 2500 titles for Kindle and adds more all the time.
To borrow a Kindle e-book:
If you run into trouble you can call your local library branch or follow the instructions on the website for online support. You can borrow an e-book for 3 weeks; the book “expires” after 3 weeks and disappears from your Kindle. And, just like printed books, it’s absolutely free to borrow e-books from the library.
Wondering what other people in Fresno County are reading on their Kindles? Here are top titles checked out this month and downloaded to Kindles:
If you do start borrowing e-books for your Kindle, you’re in good company. During the month of September (when e-books became available for use on Kindle), nationwide library e-book checkouts were nearly triple than the total for ALL of 2010.
Don’t have a Kindle but do have an iPad, Nook, iPhone, Sony eReader, Android, or any other e-book device? You’re also in good company. Since we began loaning e-books in January, almost 2,000 Fresno County citizens have used the Library to borrow e-books on all of the e-readers named above.
