Kindle downloads now available from US public libraries

Sep 21 2011

Amazon and library e-book vendor OverDrive announced this morning its plan to allow library lending via the Kindle and Kindle app is now live. The service, which will be available at some 11,000 libraries across the U.S. at launch, enables libraries to expand their e-book lending to the nation’s most popular e-reading platform....Under the arrangement, Kindle users can now use their local library’s web site to search for and select a book, then choose the "Send to Kindle" option to borrow it. They are then redirected to Amazon, where they log in to their Amazon account, and the book is delivered to the device they select. The lend period is two weeks.
