I agree. My small town public library (population 7, 000) also lends out Kindles with over 250 ebooks preloaded - 200 NY Times best sellers. You can borrow for 3 week loan period and renew up to 3 times, if not on hold for another user. It's great. I love my local public library! -----Original Message----- From: Medical Libraries Discussion List [mailto:[log in to unmask]] On Behalf Of Julie Stielstra Sent: Wednesday, August 13, 2014 10:27 AM To: [log in to unmask] Subject: Re: WSJ Article Libraries Beat Amazon Woo HOO!
