E-books for Kindle readers come to City Library

In keeping with the Library’s goals of providing “uncommonly friendly service”, and creating a comfortable environment for the community to enjoy and utilize, Southlake Library customers can now download electronic books (e-books) to their Kindle readers.

“Over the last six months, the Library has taken aggressive strides to provide digital content for several of the more popular e-readers on the market,” stated City Librarian and Deputy Director of Community Services, Kerry McGeath. Library e-books were first made available to customers with iPad, Nook, and Sony e-readers, as well as audio books for users with iPods or other MP3 devices.

By dedicating a portion of the Library’s budget for e-book and audio player content, the Library hope to increase the ease and flexibility through which customers access reading materials. Customers, for instance, can download electronic books from the comfort of their home, even beyond the Library’s regular hours of operation.

“We still have a great selection of books that you can touch and feel, but if you want to travel light for vacation, you can still read your favorite library books on your Nook or Kindle,” commented McGeath.
