Kindle eBooks are here!!!
Our eBook download service now has books for Amazon Kindle devices. When you login to Overdrive audiobooks and eBooks, you will find 3,875 titles available in "Kindle Book" format. As part of the update to support Kindle compatibility, OverDrive will revise the help pages and FAQs on library websites to help Kindle users.
Patrons checking out Kindle titles will be able to use Amazon's Whispersync technology so that they can highlight and add margin notes to the books they check out. The notes will not show up when the next patron checks out the book, but if the patron checks out the book again, or buys it later, the notes will be there.
"Libraries are a critical part of our communities, and we're excited to be making Kindle books available at more than 11,000 local libraries around the country," said Jay Marine, the director of Amazon Kindle.
