ALBANY, GA (WALB) –  E-Readers were popular technology gifts for Christmas.

Now, more libraries are offering free E-Book downloads. The Lee County Library just started offering the E-Books Thursday at noon and already all 30 books have been checked out. Instead of going to the building, you can download the books from their website. Right now, the books available are typically Best Sellers, but they hope to have more selections soon. Librarians say it's just like checking out a library book.

"They check out for seven days. You just download them to your device and then after the seven days they come off the device," said Leslie Partridge, Lee County Librarian.

The E-Books will download to the Sony E-reader, the Nook, and most smart phones. You need a PINES Library card to access the books. Books are also available through the Dougherty County Library's website.
