To checkout the ebook, all you need is a valid zip code and a valid library card.
Readers can then head to the library's website and click and download.
Adds library spokesman Ruth Lednicer:
It’s really cool! Readers never have to leave their homes. They’ll have three weeks to read the book before it electronically returns itself to the library — there are no late fees.
Ebooks had been available to other e-reader owners for years, but not for Kindle owners. Kindles remain the most popular e-readers on the market.
The library pays licensing fees for every digital copy they have of each book.
