New technology is making the Dougherty County library system more user friendly.

You can now check out eBooks from your Amazon Kindle.

If you have a library card, you can download popular and classic eBooks to any mobile device that runs the free Kindle app.

You can check out books from home, so it saves you on gas, and you don't have to remember due dates.

"The good thing about it is, you can check the book out and not have to worry about the due date or deadline after the two weeks. You don't have to worry about getting back to the library. Once your two weeks is up, it's gone and you don't have to remember a due date," said Northwest Library Senior Manager Courtney Lumpkin.

Visit the Georgia Download Destination website to download eBooks for your Kindle: http://gadd.lib.overdrive.com/.
