DeKalb library gets books, technology through grant

DeKALB – The DeKalb Public Library received a dozen Kindles, a computer tablet and several business books through a pair of Illinois State Library grants.

The 12 e-readers were added to the library’s two Kindles and one Nook already in circulation, according a news release.

The e-readers have audio menus and text-to-speech capability helpful for the visually impaired. Local business owners can use the tablet, while the business books are available to all community members, according to the news release.

Patrons can check out all of the items at the adult services circulation desk for three weeks at a time. The library is at 309 Oak St. in DeKalb.

The library received the Kindles through an Eliminating the Digital Divide grant, while the other items were part of the Business and Libraries project.
