The Johnson Public Library is committed to connecting members of the community to information. That is why as part of our ongoing mission, we now lend kindle e-readers to our members.

There are only 3 requirements. You must:

  • Be a resident of Hackensack with a valid JPL library card
  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Be in good standing; no fines, no overdue items.

E-readers can be checked out for two weeks at a time. Due to demand, they cannot be renewed. You’re welcome however, to place holds as often as you like.

You will be able to choose up to 5 ebooks from our collection. This collection is constantly growing! In addition, you will also be able to make a request for one title if we don’t already have it. As long as that title is available in the kindle store and is under $20, we will purchase it for you…guaranteed.
