How can I borrow a Kindle?
Borrowing a Kindle is as simple as borrowing any book from the library. The only difference is prior to borrowing we need a signed Kindle Consent form from your parents, which many of you have already returned. However if you have still not returned a form then the Kindle Consent Forms are available from the library or online on the WFC library website.
What eBooks are on the Kindles?
You can search the library catalogue just as you would for a regular book. Any books that are available on one of the Kindles will always have (Kindle) after the title. All of the Kindles are numbered and in the catalogue search results clicking on the TOC symbol will advise which Kindle that title can be found on.
