I meant to blog about this the other day, when the news broke

but with all that was going on, forgot to. I think it's great news, and my public library does use Overdrive. :) So just in case you didn't catch the news....

Amazon announces e-book loans for the Kindle
OverDrive's Burleigh said this service helps make library services available to new groups of people, who may not be inclined to go to a physical library to check out hard copies of books.

"Libraries have always been at the forefront of making new forms of reading available," he said. "It's helping them do that and to reach more people in their communities."
