WOODLAND — The Yolo County Library’s eBook collection is now compatible with the world’s bestselling eBook reader, the Amazon Kindle. Library patrons can download free popular and classic eBooks to a Kindle device, or any mobile device running the free Kindle app, such as iPhone, iPad or Android.

To get started, visit www.yolocountylibrary.org.

Yolo County Library also offers eBooks and audiobooks for use on a PC or Mac computer and popular mobile devices such as a smart phone, MP3 player and eBook readers like the Barnes & Noble Nook and Sony Reader.

“The more ways we can bring books into people’s lives, that’s all for the better,” said Yolo County Supervisor Don Saylor. “And if we can save a few trees in the process, that’s a bonus.”

According to the Pew Internet and American Life Project’s June report, adult eReader ownership doubled in just the six months between November 2010 and May 2011. The Kindle application for the Yolo County Library’s free eBooks is another way the library is trying to be more responsive to the needs of the Yolo County community.

“With our forward-thinking, innovative staff, we will continue to explore ways to provide more services to you,” said Yolo County Librarian Patty Wong. “Let us know what you think of our eBooks and compatibility options.”

Kindle users can browse the Yolo County Library’s collection of bestselling and classic eBooks from a PC or Mac computer, check out titles using a valid library card and select “Get for Kindle” to deliver eBooks to their Kindle device or any device running the free Kindle app.

Users who enjoy eBooks on a Kindle will benefit from Amazon’s Whispersync technology that synchronizes notes, highlights and last page read between their Kindle and free Kindle apps.

Visit the Library’s website, www.yolocountylibrary.org, to download eBooks for a Kindle or other devices.
