Amazon Publishing has come to a deal with the Digital Public Library Exchange to put its ebooks into (perhaps obviously) public libraries.
Nate Hoffelder received an announcement of this fact that puts the timeframe as beginning this summer and being complete by the end of the year.
There are, he says, 10,000 books in the Amazon Publishing catalog, and library users will access them through the SimplyE app, which is available in the iTunes and Google Play stores.
The DPLA is a nonprofit aimed at expanding access to ebooks and audiobooks at public libraries, with a reader-first approach.
Hoffelder has the Amazon library lending terms up on his website.
