Check Out a Library Kindle

Posted & filed under Blog, Technology.

The Lincolnwood Public Library has ten fully loaded Kindle eReaders ready for you to borrow starting Monday, June 1!

The Kindles arKindle cover - best sellerse divided across both age groups and reading tastes. Sample award-winning books for kids or teens, pick what your neighbors are reading with best-selling books for adults, or put your reading fate in our hands with a selection of fiction or nonfiction that we think you’ll like. We will add new titles to each Kindle every three months, providing you with an ever-growing selection of eBooks.

By checking out a single Kindle, you’ll be taking home dozens of eBooks at once. The lightweight devices are perfect for vacations, or busy days when you just don’t feel like carrying around multiple books. If you’re on the fence about buying an eReader of your own, borrowing a library Kindle might help you make up your mind.

Our Kindles come in a small box that holds everything you might need: charger, instructions, and protective cases. Since they take up so little space for the number of books they provide, the new library Kindles mean there’s more room on our shelves for great books, DVDs, and music.

Now for the nitty-gritty: the Kindles are for Lincolnwood resident library cardholders, and they can be reserved. Once you check out a Kindle, it’s yours for three weeks; as long as no one else is waiting, you may renew twice. View a complete list of each Kindle’s titles in person in the library, or through our online catalog:
