Mequon Library first in Wisconsin to loan Kindle 2
Linda Bendix, Library Director at Frank L Weyenberg Public Library in Mequon, says an anonymous donor has made it possible for the library to loan out a Kindle 2. Capable of holding up to 1,500 electronic books and retailing at $360, the device already has 25 patron holds on it. The Journal-Sentinel story states that Weyenberg's Kindle comes loaded with 10 books. Magazines and other resources may be added at some point, depending on patron interest.
