Jefferson County Public Library Now Offers eReaders for Checkout

Jefferson County Public Library (JCPL) announced today that is it now offering a limited number of JCPL 2 Go devices for checkout at all 10 library locations. These Internet-enabled computer tablets offer wireless access to an exciting menu of digital information, including eBooks, magazines, games, videos, Internet search capabilities and more. 

“We’re very excited to be offering this convenient technology,” said Pam Nissler, executive director, JCPL. “Patrons can use these devices to access a world of digital information from anywhere, anytime. It’s like taking the Library with you wherever you go,” she added.

JCPL 2 Go devices are wireless D2 tablets that weigh less than a paperback but can contain a virtual library of eBooks and other digital information. The tablets come preloaded with selected eBook titles, a game, and Library eBook applications, so patrons can download other digital titles from the Library. They are available in three formats − kids, teens and adults − and may be checked out for three weeks at a time. They come with a carrying case, charger and instructions, and Library staff members are available to provide an overview of the device to interested patrons.

JCPL 2 Go devices will be included with the Library’s Lucky Day offerings and displayed near library entrances. As with other Lucky Day items, they may not be reserved in advance or set aside for patron pick-up. While patrons can search the Library’s online catalog to determine availability of JCPL 2 Go devices, they are only available for checkout on a first-come, first-served basis.

JCPL 2 Go devices were made available through a generous donation from the Jefferson County Library Foundation.
