eBooks for Kindle


Amazon® Kindle compatibility has been added to the Ohio eBook Project collection. This update allows eBooks to be borrowed and read on all Kindle devices as well as on free Kindle reading apps for iPhone®, iPad®, Android™ and other mobile devices.

You can use Amazon’s Whispersync technology to make notes, set bookmarks and highlight passages in library eBooks.  Your notes, bookmarks and highlights will be preserved if you check out that title again in the future or if you decide to purchase your own copy from the Kindle store.


To check out a library eBook for Kindle:

  - Visit the Ohio eBook Project website.

  - Select an available eBook.

   - Click the "Get for Kindle" button. This will take you to the Amazon.com website. You may be required to sign in with your Amazon.com account if you are not already logged in.

  - Select your Kindle device or Kindle reading app. Click the "Get library book" button and sync your device or app to download the book. You can also choose to send the book to your device via USB.
