New Titles on our Nook SimpleTouch

graphic of eReaderThrough the eREADS in eWashington program library patrons can check out a NOOK Simple Touch, pre-loaded with a selection of titles. The goal of the project is to demystify the eReading experience for library patrons and connect libraries through resource sharing.

Six library systems in a five-county area are participating. Patrons with a Whitman County Library card have the option of checking out one of the NOOKs. We are currently circulating NOOKs containing the genres Classics and General/Literary Fiction. A listing of the current titles is below.

Currently, these NOOKs are only available for checkout from the Colfax Branch Library. Please call the Colfax Library at 509-397-4366 or toll-free at 877-733-3375 for questions or to be placed on the waiting list.

The project is funded through a grant from the Washington State Library and the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
