Kindle Fire(d), that is. The library now has two Kindle Fires for checkout, so what are you waiting for? Come check them out at the Circulation Desk! The Kindles are loaded with minimum accoutrements for your reading pleasure. Drop by, take it for a test read, and tell us what you’d like to see on them. Once we have enough feedback, we’ll update them.
The Kindle Fire gives you wide-angle viewing on its 7-inch screen, higher pixel resolution than the iPad, a highly sensitive touch-screen, cloud technology and more free apps than you can shake an angry bird at. The Fire’s anti-glare technology makes reading in the worst of light easier, and its Amazon Silk technology allows for seamless, super fast web-browsing.
While this may not be the best tablet in the world, it rivals the iPad for flexibility, resolution and of course price. Kindle Fire supports Adobe Flash player, software not available on the iPads. While there is no camera, or 3G, with millions of ebooks, music titles, movies and more at your fingertips, you’ll have plenty to keep you busy while you see what all the fuss is about.
As with all our technology, patrons assume responsibility while the Kindle Fire is in their possession. Our ever-pleasant, ever-helpful circulation staff will clue you in on what’s involved, so ask Nancy, Michaela or whomever is at the desk for help. They can also get you started on what to do if you would like a few pointers.
Dacus provides you with twenty (20) laptops, fifteen(15) iPads, and now two (2) Kindle Fires (not to mention more than a half million books from that older technology known as print). What more could you want from this full-service library that will soon be open 24-hours a day!
