Borrow a Kindle

At the Main Library in Hillsborough and the Carrboro Branch Library at McDougle Middle School, we have Kindles ready for you to check out. To do so, you will need a current library card and an account in good standing. 

Our Kindles are loaded with fiction and nonfiction bestsellers and other popular titles – you can find the current list in the library’s online catalog.

Visit the information desk on the 2nd floor of the Main Library or the service desk at the Carrboro Branch Library to borrow a Kindle today.
