You can check out a Kindle book from HCPL  and read it on any generation Kindle device or free Kindle reading app.

When you borrow a Kindle public library book, you'll have access to all the unique features of Kindle books, including real page numbers and Whispersync technology that synchronizes your notes, highlights, and last page read. After an OverDrive book expires, if you check it out again or choose to purchase it from the Kindle store, all of your annotations and bookmarks will be preserved.

How It Works

You can borrow Kindle books from HCPL's OverDrive website and, with the click of a button, have them delivered to your Kindle device or free reading app.

• Check out a Kindle book (using a valid library card).

• Click on "Get for Kindle" and then sign in to your account to have the book delivered to your Kindle device or reading app.

Note: Public library books can be sent wirelessly to Kindle devices via an active Wi-Fi connection or transferred via USB.

This is the news that many of us have been waiting for. I was at the library today, of all places, when I happened to check my email and found a notice from HCPL. I promptly went to the Overdrive site and checked out a couple books. (It appears the collection of ebooks has grown, as there were 25 pages of available titles.) Borrowing books on the Kindle is much easier than with the epubs I had tried before as they are delivered wirelessy without having to fuss with the Digital Editions software. I loved my Kindle before, but finally being able to use it to check out books is the bee's knees!
