Amazon Launches Kindle Library Service
Following up on our previous article on Amazon’s plans to launch a Kindle library service, the online retail giant officially launched the service today, allowing Kindle and Kindle app users to borrow eBooks from over 11,000 local libraries.
Jay Marine, Director for the Amazon Kindle released this statement through Amazon’s website:
“Libraries are a critical part of our communities and we’re excited to be making Kindle books available at more than 11,000 local libraries around the country. We’re even doing a little extra here – normally, making margin notes in library books is a big no-no. But we’re fixing this by extending our Whispersync technology to library books, so your notes, highlights and bookmarks are always backed up and available the next time you check out the book or if you decide to buy the book.”
