Support for the Kindle platform means that even more County Library customers can take advantage of the County’s growing digital collection.  Other supported devices include the Nook by Barnes & Noble, the Sony Reader, the iPad and smartphones including the iPhone, Blackberry and Android.

County Librarian Margaret Donnellan Todd says, “We are a library for the 21st century.  Our mission is to support reading and the love of books.  For a hundred years this Library has made the printed word accessible to all Los Angeles County residents.  For the next hundred years and beyond, we will continue this important mission.  Our investment in eBooks and digital technology ensures that we provide continued access to books regardless of format.”

With the addition of support for the Kindle, the County Library now supports all major eBook reader platforms.

With the addition of these 10,000 eBooks, the County Library will have more than 13,000 eBooks in its collections.  The Library partners with Overdrive, a Cleveland Ohio company, to provide access to eBooks and downloadable audiobooks to its many customers.  Library patrons checked out 16,000 copies of eBooks in August 2011 and more than 100,000 copies since the beginning of the service.

The County Library will begin the process of adding the additional eBook titles immediately, with the 10,000 title goal reached in October of this year.
