Welcome to our e-Reader lending service. This program was developed to explore how Kindle and iPads can be used effectively as an alternate tool to build up the library’s eBook collection and to explore how new technologies can enhance reading and learning.
When you come to the Library to check the e-reader out, you will be asked to complete the RCCC E-Reader Agreement, acknowledging financial responsibility for lost or damaged equipment. The patron will be asked to show a current photo ID to validate against patron record.
We have three different options for you to read an ebook:
Option 1: Borrow our device to download a library ebook
- If you would like to use our Kindle Fire or iPad to select your own title from Library2GO (Overdrive), see a librarian at the Circulation Desk.
Option 2: Devices with pre-loaded titles
- We have Kindle Fire e-readers available for patrons with pre-loaded titles.
Option 3: Use your device to borrow ebooks from OverDrive
- eBooks and Digital Media
