BCC Library Launches e-Reader Program
August 7, 2012 - As fall semester begins, a new era is starting at Brevard Community College campus libraries thanks to a new service — e-readers.
These special tools — four Kindle Touches and an iPad — will be available at each library to assist students, especially those who are visually impaired, to be successful in their educational quest.
Each Kindle and iPad is equipped with WIFI access and is pre-loaded with ebooks from BCC faculty reading lists and popular fiction titles.
Effective Aug. 20, students can visit the library circulation desk to inquire into availability. Due to limited supply, use will be on a first-come, first-served basis for BCC students only.
However, the process is simple. Any of the e-readers may be checked out for use over a three week period just like a book.
Additionally, laptops are available to all students for in-library use. They are fully-equipped with WIFI access and printer-capable.
For more information, contact your campus library:
