eBook Library Lending

Good news for bibliophiles! The Kindle will soon work with OverDrive, the free online eBook lending system that works with local libraries to loan books electronically. The system is simple. You go to OverDrive, punch in your library card, and join a waiting list for your eBook. When your turn comes up, you download your book and have two weeks to read it on your computer or eBook reader before it stops working and is ‘returned’ automatically.

Why is this good for schools like Greenwood? Our library is fantastic, but is very small and relies on an advanced interlibrary loan system to get books from other, better-stocked libraries. This new development will allow students, teachers, and others in the community to download books easily, allowing even rural districts like mine to have access to wonderful content at a lower cost to our local library. Lastly, with the Kindle finally joining the library lending system, we might finally see some standardization in the new and fractured eBook market.
