Kindles, Nooks, and iPads

The Kindles, Nooks, and iPads that the Library purchased through a grant from the Community Foundation of Eastern CT are now available to patrons.  The two iPads are for use within the library only, and printing from the iPads is enabled.  The Kindles and Nooks (the library has 2 of each and they may be reserved) may be checked out for two weeks.  They are preloaded with best-selling titles, and we will be periodically adding new ones.  In some instances, we may be able to acquire titles for the e-readers before the print copies arrive. We welcome suggestions for titles to be downloaded. Below is a list of the titles currently available. In the near future, we hope to have updated lists on our web site.  Please try them out and let us know what you think!
