Coming later this year:
Amazon and OverDrive announced the Kindle Library Lending program, which will enable Kindle customers to borrow and enjoy eBooks from Curtis Library. The program is scheduled for launch later this year.
- The existing collection of downloadable eBooks will be available to Kindle customers. As the library consortium adds new eBooks to the collection, those titles will also be available for lending to Kindle and Kindle reading apps.
- A user will be able to browse for 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 borrowed title can then be enjoyed using any Kindle device and all of Amazon’s free Kindle reading apps.
- The Kindle eBook titles borrowed from a library will carry the same rules and policies as all our other eBooks.
- The Kindle Library Lending program will support publishers’ existing lending models.
