Borrowing Books from a Public Library

Students and parents can borrow Kindle books through the website of their local library and have them sent directly to your Kindle device or Kindle reading app. Kindle books that you borrow from a public library are available to you for a specific period of time, just like with physical library books. These books are offered through a digital service called OverDrive (www.overdrive.com).

Check Out a Public Library Book

To check out a public library book for Kindle:

Confirm whether your library branch is eligible and carries Kindle books by visiting overdrive.com, or the website of your local library.
Local Library Websites:

Bergen County Cooperative Library System: (ebccls.org)
Passaic Public Library: (http://palsplus.lib.overdrive.com/)
Paterson Free Public Library: (http://palsplus.lib.overdrive.com/)
For other town and counties please check overdrive.com/libraries to find a library nearest you.
Get a library card and a PIN from your local library. It is important that you get the PIN which will be required at the check out.
Go to the website of your local public library and search for Kindle books / eBooks.
At checkout, sign in to your Amazon account Kindle device to send the book to.
Connect your device to Wi-Fi and download the title from the Archived Items or Cloud.
Return a Library Book

To return a library book before the loan period ends, visit Manage Your Content and Devices.

Since the length of a book loan is determined by the library, check with your public library to find out when to return a borrowed book. You’ll receive a courtesy reminder e-mail from Amazon three days before the book is due and another e-mail when the loan period has ended.

To return a library book:

Go toManage Your Content and Devices.
FromYour Content, select the Actions button next to the book that you want to return.
SelectReturn This Book, and then select Yes in the pop-up window.
You will no longer have access to the book from your device after it’s been returned. However, you can always access your saved notes and highlights through Manage Your Content and Devices even after the book has been returned. If you check out the book again, or purchase it from Amazon, your notes and highlights will appear in the book.
