Denton Public Library Now Has Kindle Books!

Kindle users can now check out electronic books from the Denton Public Library.

Kindle-friendly “e-books” became available last week at thousands of libraries across the country. Readers in Denton can check them out by clicking the “Download Center” button on the library’s website ( A full service Denton Public Library card is required to download a book.

Readers never have to leave their homes to check out a title. They’ll have three weeks to read the book before it automatically returns itself to the library — there are no late fees. There is a limit of ten books that can be checked out at a time.

E-books have been available at the library to users of other electronic reading devices, such as the Barnes & Noble Nook or the Sony Reader, for several years. Those with iPhones or Android devices can also access the e-books.
