Pre-Loaded Kindles To Go

Can’t find what you’re looking for on our shelves?  Tired of waiting for a popular best seller?  Inquire at the front desk about our newly updated pre-loaded Paperwhite Kindles to go.  Currently, they hold a total of 60 titles and are ready to be loaned out.

If you haven’t tried a Kindle before, ask the library staff for assistance to get you started.  Once you get the hang of reading on a Kindle, you’ll love the convenience!
