Kindle Borrowing Policy

  • Scientific Library Kindles circulate only to employees.
  • Kindles may be borrowed for four weeks and may be renewed once, if no one else is waiting to borrow one.
  • A Kindle will wait on the Hold Shelf for 3 days before transferring to the next requestor.
  • Please do not download any books or PDF files onto the Kindle. Anything added to the Kindle will be deleted when it is returned. If you would like a title added to the Kindle, please complete the Library's book recommendation form included with the Kindle or on the Library's website.
