Howard Co. libraries lending e-readers

By Washington Post editors

The Howard County Library started lending out e-readers to its patrons Dec. 1. The pilot program has become so popular since then that on Wednesday, more than 280 people were on the waiting list to check out one of the 60 Nooks that have 34 books downloaded on them, including best-sellers and classics, the Columbia Flier reports.

“We knew that e-readers were becoming more of an inviting way to read, and we decided to look into how we might pilot an initiative that would introduce the technology to Howard County residents who had not yet experienced it,” Howard County Library President and CEO Valerie Gross said.
