it’s here, Kindle e-books launch today in some locations

September 21, 2011

sometime…today that is….in some places.

Yesterday, we announced that a beta test was underway at KCLS and SPL.  This morning in an email from Steve Potash CEO and President of OverDrive it was announced that Kindle compatibility is here for library e-books.

OverDrive is updating all U.S. public and school library websites to support Kindle compatibility.  The nationwide update should be completed by next Wednesday.  In the past Sno-Isle has been in the first tier to receive these rollouts for new features so we may be seeing this functionality sooner rather than later.   As of this morning our website hasn’t been updated for Kindle compatibility.  I am waiting to hear back from our OverDrive  Account Specialist to find out more specifics as soon as we know more we’ll be sharing it with you.
