eReader Kits

eBooks are rapidly becoming an important part of every library’s holdings. Are you prepared to meet the challenges of your patrons who come in and require help with eReader devices? Does your staff need a little more time and practice with the various e-reader devices that are available out there? 

The Indiana State Library has 10 eReader kits available for check out. Each kit contains each of the seven eReaders that are commercially available, including:

  • iPad
  • Kindle
  • Kindle Fire
  • Sony Reader
  • HansPad
  • Ematic
  • Kyros 7 

These kits are great for staff training days as well as individual workshops on e-books. An Indiana public or school library may obtain these kits by contacting the PDO at (317) 234-5650 or pdo@library.in.gov.
