Great News for Kindle Users! Free Library eBooks are Now Available for Your Device!

The Vineyard Haven Public Library is pleased to announce that our downloadable eBooks are now compatible with the Kindle eReader. This update allows most existing eBooks in the library’s collection to be read on all Kindle devices or by using free Kindle apps for iPhone, iPad, Android and other mobile devices.

Here is the process for checking out a library eBook for Kindle:
  • Visit the CLAMS ‘Virtual Branch’ website:
  • Browse and "check out" a Kindle book, using your CLAMS library card number.
  • Click the ‘Get for Kindle’ button. This opens the website. You may be required to sign in with your account if you are not already logged in.
  • Select a Kindle device or Kindle reading app. Click the ‘Get library book’ button and sync your device or app to download the book, or choose to send it to your device via USB.
  • An active Wi-Fi connection is required for wireless delivery to a Kindle device. If your Kindle is not Wi-Fi capable or you do not have an active Wi-Fi connection, read Amazon’s instructions for transferring files via USB.
CLAMS patrons may check out up to 5 books at a time for a two-week checkout period. If a book is currently checked out to another patron, you may place a hold on the item and will receive an email notification when the eBook becomes available. For more information, visit the "My Help" section on the CLAMS digital downloads website.
