Amazon Kindle, NOW Compatible

We are pleased to announce that Amazon Kindle is now compatible with your library's eBook collection. All browsing, searching, and checkout of eBook titles can be accessed through the library's iDownloads page. When a user checks out a Kindle Book, a "Get for Kindle" link will be presented that opens a new window (or tab) at Amazon prompting the user to login to their Amazon account. Fulfillment will occur at Amazon's website so you will need an Amazon account to access the library eBook in the Kindle format. No purchase or credit card is required to create an Amazon Kindle account. Once signed in, select which Kindle device or free Kindle app you want to deliver the title to. At launch, browse, check out, and fulfillment of Kindle Books from your library can be completed from we browsers on PC and Mac, iPad, and numerous other tablet devices.
