We are currently building our collection and need your help! You can use the Suggest a Title link or e-mail us at ereaders@dbq.edu to suggest a title to be loaded on the Kindle. If your suggested title is purchased, we will put a hold on the reader and notify you via e-mail.

The Kindle Circulation Policy is: 

If a Kindle is unreturned upon the due date, the patron will receive an overdue message. One week following the due date, the patron will be billed $350, which covers the cost of the Kindle, case, some content, and a $50 (non-refundable) processing fee.

Library charges for UD students are included on their student account. Library charges for UD faculty & staff will be deducted from the employee’s paycheck.

If a patron is billed and subsequently returns the Kindle, all charges will be refunded except the non-refundable processing fee ($50). This fee covers library staff time required to process overdue notices, contact patrons with overdue items, prepare billing information, and reorder required e-books.
