Kindle Books Now Available @ Your Library!

Great news for eBook lovers and Kindle users! You can now download free Kindle books from the Atlanta-Fulton Public Library System! The majority of our downloadable eBooks are now in a Kindle-friendly format that works with Kindles and all free Kindle reading apps. This means you don't even have to own a Kindle to take advantage of this opportunity. Simply download the free app to your smart phone, handheld device, or computer, set up a free account, and you're ready to start enjoying free eBooks!

To get started, visit our eMedia collection at Overdrive and start browsing for Kindle books. You will need your library card number and your PIN. Once you check out the Kindle title, you will be redirected to Amazon where you can sign in and select "Get Library Book." The next time you open your app or sync your Kindle, your title will be there waiting for you!

For more information contact your local library branch or check out Overdrive's My Help page.

Have fun Kindle users!
