Public libraries, including the Free Library, have long been stymied that the ebooks we offer were not usable on Kindles. This was an industry issue that we ourselves were not able to resolve. So we were surprised and thrilled to learn yesterday that Amazon, which sells Kindles, and OverDrive, currently the major supplier of ebooks to public libraries, announced that will change later this year. Dubbed the "Kindle Library Lending program," Kindle customers will be able to borrow eBooks from public libraries. Details are still limited, but according to an OverDrive statement, our "existing collection of downloadable eBooks will be available to Kindle customers." This means that Kindle owners will be able to check out a title with their library card "and then select Kindle as the delivery destination." We will keep you posted as to when this change will occur!
