Allen Public Library - Check out eBooks for FREE!

I didn't want to write this post yesterday because I knew it would get lost in the excitement of the Super Bowl, but this is my favorite discovery of the weekend!  You can now check out e-versions of library books and download them onto your Kindle, computer, or other compatible devices.  Is that amazing or what??!

The Allen Public Library has a program called Overdrive which allows you to "check out" a limited amount of eBooks for a 14 day period.  Click here for more information and to get started browsing the selections.

Of course, I'm sure other libraries offer a similar, convenient program.  Check with your local library to get the details.

Happy Reading, ya'll!

Tammy, my sister just got a kindle and is happily getting books downloaded free from the library, me I go the old fashion route with book in hand. Don't know if I'll change.

Tammy, thank you for sharing. This is really good to know. E-books are much cheaper than the paper ones but I would never think to check out e-book in the library. Love the idea.

Cathy- Such a great way to promote reading without having to buy an expensive book. I don't have a Kindle but hopefully I will get one soon.

Thanks for the tip.  I haven't been to the library lately, but will see if they offer this service, now that I have a KIndle.
