Borrow eBook readers

How does the NCSU eBook reader lending program work?

The NCSU Libraries offers Amazon Kindle for check out by request to NCSU students, faculty, and staff. The loan period is one week with one renewal. Overdue charges accrue at the rate of $10 per day.

Amazon Kindle User-Selected Collection

User selected popular books are available on multiple Amazon Kindle readers. Go to the eBook reader lending web page and click on the "Request" button. NCSU users must authenticate using their Unity ID. Select "Amazon Kindle" device. From that point, you may enter a title if you have a specific request or, if you wish to simply check out a Kindle, leave the title blank. The NCSU Libraries will send you an email when your Kindle is ready to pick up for a one week loan. It will contain the title(s) you selected and all previous titles selected for that reader.
