Delaware libraries to offer free wireless, eBook downloads

In addition to being able to use wireless internet, visitors to libraries in Delaware will now be able to download a wide selection of eBooks. 

All of the state’s public libraries now provide wireless internet.  Funding from a Broadband Technologies Opportunity Program (BTOP) grant from the U. S. National Technology Information Administration (NTIA) helped the state bring wireless to every library.  Meanwhile, downloadable eBooks are now available as a beta test through the Delaware Library Catalog portal at www.lib.de.us.   1,300 eBook titles are available, ready for library patrons to download to computers and eBook readers like Kindle, Nook, Sony Reader, and Kobo eReader.
