I’m excited to announce that the library now has a Kindle Touch available for check-out. As you know, we already had a Nook that patrons can check out, and it has been in great demand. To check out either eReader, patrons need to call or come in and put their names on the hold list. Checking out an eReader is a great, risk-free way to explore the eBook experience!
