Kindles and Nooks available for check out at Livingston County Library-

Leading the way with new technology, the Livingston County Library now has two Kindle Touch ereader devices and two Nook Simple Touch ereader devices available for check out to library patrons.  Library card holders 18 years of age and older who’ve had a card at least 6 months can now check out an ereader for 2 weeks, with up to 5 titles preloaded on the device. Titles will be selected from the Library’s ebook collection.  An accessible device is also available upon request.
Devices will be available on a first come, first serve basis and patrons can be put on a waiting list for a device, much like a book. A valid library card, clear of overdue items, fines and fees is needed and patrons will sign an agreement outlining the charge for a lost or damaged device.
For further questions or to put a device on hold, stop by or call the Library at 646-0547.
