An ebook reader is a great tool for borrowing free ebooks from a lending library near you. How do you find a participating library? Actually, it's easy.
Almost all the lending libraries that offer ebooks use a service from OverDrive, a digital distribution and publishing company that partners with thousands of libraries, schools, and universities around the globe to give users access to ebooks on any device they may own. The OverDrive service works with Kindle devices as well as Kindle apps on on Macintosh systems, Windows computers, iOS devices, Android devices, and Windows Phones. If there's a library near you that participates in the Overdrive program, you can use any supported device to borrow an ebook to read.
To find out if your library participates, visit OverDrive Search at http://search.overdrive.com/, click Library Search, and type in your ZIP or postal code. The search works worldwide. You probably can find a location near you.
