eReaders

Not sure an eReader is for you? Try one of ours! 

Only T-SPL patrons are able to check out a Kindle PaperWhite, Kindle Fire, and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 Nook which are preloaded with best sellers and classics. Patrons will not be able to download any content to the device. eReaders can be checked out for three weeks and can be renewed one time.

Check out our catalog or just go to the Check-Out Desk to place your reserve today. Patrons must be 16 years and older with a valid library card. All borrowers must complete and sign a borrowing agreement before checking the device out.

A late fee will be $5 per day and other fines will be assessed for damage, loss or theft of the device. eReaders must be returned to the library, not in the book or media return.

We understand getting started with your eReader can be pretty confusing. The staff at T-SPL has done their research and know the ins and outs of most brands of eReaders. Call or stop by the Information Desk for one-on-one help or just pick up a handout with step-by-step instructions.
