FREE Kindle Books From Your Library!!

Oh my goodness, more free books. Ever since I got a Kindle on my phone I've obsessively been downloading bad, but free, books from Amazon. Now I find out that you (some of you) can download free books from the library onto your Kindle!!

To find out if your library is participating in the program, you can search the OverDrive website. OverDrive operates a network that provides e-books to libraries around the world.

Here's how you do it.

Go to your library's website. Get an account if you don't already have one.

Find the link to the digital library.

After you click Downloads click the "Browse e-books".

Enter your library card information and sign in.

From there you can add books to your cart and when you're finished click on the "Proceed to checkout" link to download ebooks to your Kindle. It will show you the date you checked it out and how long you have until it "expires". (Usually 2 weeks.)

Unfortunately for you Moore County-ians (???) the only library that participates is Southern Pines. But if you're a S.P. resident, check it out! And report back to me!!
