PCPL patrons can enjoy variety of ebooks through various eReaders

Saturday, October 13, 2012

The Putnam County Public Library now has compatibility with all eReaders except the basic Kindle.

The library purchases its electronic book collection from Baker & Taylor, a long-time vendor of books and audio-visual materials to libraries. Baker & Taylor has now released the EPub/PDF software to accommodate the Nook, Kobo, Sony and Apple devices.

The PCPL collection of ebooks can be accessed through an interface called Axis360 or "The Magic Wall," which can be found on our website at www.putnam.lib.in.us.

The new compatible devices through the EPub/PDF format add to an already existing list of devices such as the Kindle Fire, Android, iPad and iPhone and PCs.

The basic Kindle reader line is proprietarily limited, and only works with titles that Amazon specifically designates.
