Ebooks can be borrowed by anyone who has a Puke Ariki and Community Libraries membership card and a reading device! There is no fee to borrow a book and there are no fines to think about because the book is returned automatically when the loan period expires.
There are a quite a few devices on the market that allow you to borrow and read or listen to ebooks and all of them require software to work (this is usually free and easily downloaded). For a fully comprehensive comparision of various devices, see Wikipedia or for more information about e-readers visit http://ebook-reader-review.toptenreviews.com/
