UPDATE 9/21/11: Kindle Library Lending is here! More Details
Did you see the Amazon announcement this week about the “Launch of Library Lending for Kindle Books”?
Complete details aren’t yet available – in their press release, Amazon says “Kindle Library Lending will be available later this year” – but before the end of 2011 we expect you will be able to browse for eBook titles on any desktop or mobile operating system, check out a title with a library card, and then select Kindle as the delivery destination. The Kindle eBook titles borrowed from a library will carry the same rules and policies as all our other eBooks.
We’ll let you know all the details, as soon as we learn more!
- Remember that OverDrive titles can be checked out for 7, 14,or 21 days – your choice. You can change the default – 21 days – at our OverDrive site. Just sign in to your eAccount and choose Lending Periods. (Unfortunately, this isn’t possible from the wireless OverDrive app)
- What’s new with the wireless OverDrive app? Check out the updates for Apple and Android devices, or visit your device’s app store/marketplace.
- Learn about OverDrive’s new BlackBerry app, which supports EPUB eBooks. Not sure if your BlackBerry is supported? See compatible devices at the Device Resource Center.
