Kindle books available at 11,000 U.S. libraries, sometime later this year

Apr 20 2011

Amazon and Overdrive Media have reached an agreement that will enable patrons to borrow Kindle books from over 11,000 libraries in the United States (i.e. those that currently provide ebooks to their patrons via Overdrive). Books will be able to be read on all Kindle devices as well as on Kindle's free ereading apps. A specific date has not been announced for when this will be available, nor is it clear whether Amazon or Overdrive will be adapting their processes to make this possible (to date Kindle files have been incompatible with Overdrive because the latter uses EPUB and Adobe Content Server, which are not supported by Amazon.
