KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT)-- Turning the pages of a book could be old news thanks to "E-books" that have captured Americans interest. This popular trend has even hit your local library!
Jami Anderson lives a busy life between her kids, husband, singing and teaching; she doesn't have a lot of time for doing what she loves-- reading. However, a new feature at the Knox County Library has given her the chance to catch up on some reading.
It takes her about 15 minutes to check out a library book now that the library has branched out with e books. Instead of going to the library every time she wants to check out a book; she can now go online and find the book she is looking for through the e books.
"We now have 4,000 ebooks available to the public. They are the digital versions of a paperback book that you can read on your e reader." says Mary Pom from the Knox County Library.
Good news for the busy book lover in us all! "It's completely convenient because you do it at your house. Turn on your computer and put your library card number in, your password and you're good to go." says Jami.
Another exciting feature of the e book system is you can say good bye to those late fees.
"My biggest problem with checking out books is bringing them back on time but after 3 weeks are up on your book that you checked out via the computer goes away." explains Jami.
It's a new wave of technology that you can find at your local library!
