LETTER: Wonderful to have access to eBooks

To the Editor:

On behalf of the Friends of the Lee County Library, I want to commend Michael Matochik and his staff for getting our eBooks program operational. I just finished checking out my first eBook, and the process was surprisingly easy. I would encourage those of you with eBook devices (Kindle, Nook, etc.) to go to the library homepage and give it a look.

In this time of budget cuts, which affect the library at two levels (local and state), it is wonderful to have access to books that we might not be able to purchase. I know that the purchasing and licensing process was long and arduous, but I thank the Lee County Library staff for their diligence in bringing this opportunity to the community.

If you have questions about the program, stop by the main branch, and they will be happy to assist you in getting signed up for eBooks.
