Chicago PL to Offer Books on Kindle by Year’s End

Chicago Public Library Commissioner Mary Dempsey announced that books that utilize the Kindle e-reader will be available at the end of the year. Currently, CPL users can employ the Sony e-reader, the Nook, and the iPad.

In addition she mentioned that 2 more branches will be opening this year, a very encouraging sign during these difficult economic times, when many cities are closing or consolidating library services.
