Sno-Isle system adopts Kindle

Sno-Isle Libraries has announced that its eBook collection is now compatible with the Amazon Kindle. Customers can download popular and classic eBooks to a Kindle device or any mobile device running the free Kindle app, such as the iPhone, iPad, Android and other devices.

Sno-Isle officials report the libraries’ eBook and audiobook download service have steadily grown in popularity since its launch in 2005.

Previously, the downloads were only available for use on a PC or Mac computer and mobile devices such as a Smartphone, MP3 player, and eBook readers like the Barnes & Noble Nook and Sony Reader.

The library system can now add Kindle, the world’s bestselling eBook reader, to the list.

“Kindle owners have been waiting for this for a long time,” said librarian Jim McCluskey, who places orders for Sno-Isle’s media collections. “It will be interesting to watch the growth in circulation as our customers find out that we have Kindle books.”
