  • Make sure everyone is connected to the library’s wifi. (What’s the Wifi ID, etc.? – Meg) To download library books, Kindle users must use WiFi or USB. 3G will not work. If anyone asks about Whispernet: It’s just the name for the technology Amazon users to deliver books over the wireless connection, no matter if it’s wifi or 3G. That’s all they need to understand.
  • This will launch Safari.
  • Make sure to mention that for every book, it will show all the available formats. Make sure you choose the correct format for your device. If a copy is checked out, they will have the option to “Place a Hold” and enter their email address to be informed when it is available. “ Proceed to checkout” very reminiscent of online shopping (like with Amazon) that will be familiar to most people. They can also “Continue Browsing” if they want to add more books before checking out.
  • On the checkout screen, you can review the lending period options available (are you a speed reader or do you like to take your time?). Then just click “Confirm Check Out”.
  • Finally you come to the Download screen. Here you can review the Checkout date (today) and when your book is due back (on the right side of the screen).
