Kindle Keyboard (3G enabled) and Kindle Paperwhite models are available for check out.  Both models have 6" screens and they circulate with a case, USB cable, and charger.  The Kindles also come preloaded with a suite of popular reading titles.  Users may access their own Amazon accounts with the devices, but all downloads will be cleared from each device upon return.

Loan Policies

The Kindles circulate for two weeks at a time.  Kindles *may* be available on a first come, first served basis; however, during periods of high demand, a wait list may be implemented.  Check with the library services desk for additional information.  Overdue fines for Kindles are 5.00 per day.
