A guide to checking out and using Kindles at Jerome Library.

Contemporary Fiction

Contemporary Non-Fiction

Not sure what you want to read? We have several Kindles that are pre-loaded with every book on this page. We've chosen a selection of popular favorites and we hope to have something to please every reader. 

If you have a specific book in mind, you can check out a blank Kindle and download the book by using your personal Amazon account. You can find books via the Wood County District Public Library, another local public library, or by purchasing the books. Any book you purchase will be deleted from the library's Kindle when it's returned, but they will be available in your Amazon account to be read with another device.
