At Long Last, Kindle Owners Can Now Get Free eBooks From Library
Sno-Isle Libraries has announced that its eBook collection is now compatible with the world’s bestselling eBook reader, the Amazon® Kindle. Customers can now download popular and classic eBooks to a Kindle device or any mobile device running the free Kindle app, such as iPhone®, iPad®, Android™, and more.
Sno-Isle Libraries’ eBook and audiobook download service has been steadily gaining in popularity since its launch in 2005. But prior to this week, the downloads were only available for use on a PC or Mac computer and mobile devices such as a Smartphone, MP3 player, and eBook readers like the Barnes & Noble® Nook™ and Sony® Reader – but not the Kindle.
“Kindle owners have been waiting for this for a long time,” says librarian Jim McCluskey, who places orders for the library’s media collections. “It will be interesting to watch the growth in circulation as our customers find out that we have Kindle books.”
Kindle users can browse Sno-Isle Libraries’ collection of bestselling and classic eBooks from a PC or Mac computer, check out titles using a library card, and select “Get for Kindle” to deliver eBooks to their Kindle device or any device running the free Kindle app. To download the free eBooks for your Kindle, visit the library’s website at http://www.sno-isle.org, go to Books, Movies & Music, then click on Downloads.
