Have you always wanted to try out an e-reader? Are you going on vacation and want to just take one device instead of a stack of books? The library is now offering preloaded NOOK Simple Touch e-readers to be checked out! No buying books, no downloading titles, just easy e-reading.
Each of the Nooks are preloaded with books: bestseller, non-fiction, mystery, women’s fiction, inspiration fiction, young adult, thrillers, books-to-movies and romance titles are available. To check out a Nook, you must be a Pekin Library Cardholder (18 years of age or older) with an account in good standing. Nooks check out for three weeks. Nook check-outs are handled at the Information Desk.
The Friends of the Pekin Public Library supplied the funds to sponsor this pilot program. For more information, please call the library’s Information Desk at 347-7111
