How it works

To borrow a Kindle eBook you need to go to your US Library that offers digital services from Overdrive. Use your valid library card to check out the book, then click “Get for Kindle” and sign into your Amazon account. You don’t have to physically be at the library to do this, you can do it from the comfort of you home.
