We recently got some good news at Turning Pages…. Amazon has agreed to provide us with some kindles for use in our adult literacy work! As far as I can tell, this is the first program of its kind.
Ebooks tend to run about $9.99 on Kindle — but the Richland County Public Library has over 10,000 ebooks available for loan as Kindle editions. And (this is one of the best parts) you can’t get charged overdue fines, because when the loan period is up, the ebook is automatically “returned” to the library!
Do you have a kindle? Do you like it?
