E-Ink Kindle devices


Kindles are a line of popular eReaders from Amazon designed to work with the Kindle Book format (available to U.S. libraries only).

This profile covers Kindle eReaders, like the original Kindle and the Kindle Paperwhite. We have a separate device profile for Kindle Fire tablets (the Kindle Fire, Fire HD, and Fire HDX), which are compatible with more digital formats.

You can read more about Kindle on Amazon's website.

Compatible formats

Note: Some Kindle Books from your library (including many picture books, read-alongs, and graphic novels) aren't compatible with Kindle eReaders. To check if an eBook has Kindle device restrictions, visit its details page on your library's OverDrive website and click the restrictions link under "Available formats" (if shown).
