New Lendable Nooks are here!

A funny thing has happened behind the Reference Desk - there is an entire shelf of those soft black Nook cases lined up just waiting to jump off the shelf and into the hands of an eager reader.

Since we rolled out our first lendable Nooks last November, you'd be hard pressed to walk in and find one on the shelf. Our lendable Nooks have been popular with all kinds of readers including seasoned ebook readers, readers wanting to try an e-reader device for the first time, and readers that don't want to carry around heavy hardcovers (how else can you read Winter of the World without straining your forearms?).

We heard your pleas for more Nooks and have answered the call. Our new batch of Nooks include the addition of second Suspense, Mystery, and Nonfiction Nooks and a third Literary/Book Group as well as new genre Nooks including Historical Fiction, Romance, and a particular favorite genre of our adult librarians, Horror/Gothic. Click here to view all of the lendable Adult Nooks.

Nooks are pre-loaded with 10-15 titles and are available for a three week checkout. Patrons must be 15 years of age to check out a Nook and must present a valid Jefferson County Library card and valid photo ID at the time of checkout. You can place a hold on a Nook by calling the Reference Desk at 445-1121 or you can find our Nooks online here on the Lendable Nooks page at
