I have a Kindle and am most anxious to know if Lowell Library plans to participate in this program.

You can borrow e-books from a library now on the Nook and possibly other e-readers but you CAN NOT borrow library books on the Kindle. The Kindle does not have that feature though Amazon is working on it.

Any MA resident can get an e-library card from the Boston Public Library and borrow books now through Overdrive. If you do not have an e-reader I believe you can read those books on your pc/laptop. It is true that the selection is limited.

Has Amazon issued a formal announcement indicating the potential future Kindle - public library interface?
