News for Kindle Touch Users

May 7, 2012 | Niall | Comments (6)

You may have read about the recent news about about Amazon’s Kindle Touch 3G – a top-of-the-line digital book reader, finally arriving in Canada a half-year after its launch in America. 

We would like to remind those users who wish to use this reader that, unfortunately, Kindle-compatible ebooks are not yet an option for Canadian libraries.

We wrote about the availability of eBooks for Kindle previously on our blog, explaining that there are many other devices compatible with Adobe PDF and EPUB ebooks offered at TPL. Amazon has separate agreements with publishers, distributors, and cellular carriers in Canada, and this means separate legal arrangements for Kindle library lending. As always, Toronto Public Library will continue to monitor developments in this area.


Staff from the Toronto Public Library's eServices team talk about recent changes, future plans and ideas and issues you raise about the library's online and mobile services.
