Kindle Users Now Can Check Out Ebooks From Local Libraries

Finally, Amazon allows Kindle users to check out their local libraries’ ebooks as long they have valid library cards and Amazon account.  I’ve tried it, but unfortunately my local library is still trying to get Kindle ebook setup process to work, and so I definitely have to try to check out an ebook for Kindle from my local library again soon.  Why don’t you try to check out an ebook for Kindle from your local library to see if you can?

Anyhow, here how it should work!  You go to your local library’s website, browse for the ebooks that you want to check out with your Kindle and then do so.  Your Kindle should be able to receive the ebooks from your library for limited time.  According to Engadget, ebooks from your library should have limited copies and expiration date just like how one would have borrowed a physical book from a local library.  I’m still not clear on how to return an ebook to a local library, you know?
