Take an eReader for a test drive!

Find out if reading on an eBook reader is for you.  We have a limited number of devices (Nooks, Kindles, and Sony eReaders) available for check out that are preloaded with popular titles so all you have to do is enjoy. 

Visit Information Services if you would like to check out a Nook.  You must have a Joliet Public Library Adult card and you will be asked to sign a waiver before each checkout.  Nooks may be checked out for 2 week periods without the option of renewal ($1 per day overdue fine.)
