The Queens Library, pioneering the concept of lending e-readers, is the first to do so in the NY public library system. According to The Wall Street Journal, 50 Nook devices will be available at the Central Library in Jamaica beginning this week
Each reader is preloaded with 25 e-books broken into 5 categories: children’s lit, young adult, mystery, romance, and best sellers. The Brooklyn and NY public libraries are also considering loaning out e-readers.
