The Sacramento Public Library now has Nook eReaders available for check out at each of our 28 library locations. Each location has at
least one eReader pre-loaded with approximately 20 books in different categories, including best sellers, mystery, romance,
science fiction, fantasy/horror and biographies. Taking one home is as simple as filling out and signing the Lending Policy and Agreement.
Note that Sacramento will also be talking about their Nook Experience at this year's Edgy Library on 2/1/2012. More information at http://www.califa.org/EdgyLibrarian.php.
Sacramento Public Library has partnered with Barnes & Noble to provide Nook devices and content, and Barnes & Noble will be offering a series of trainings to show staff and patrons how to use the devices. See a staff member for more information about training.

Can I request a specific Nook?
Yes, there are many different Nooks that come pre-loaded with eBooks hand-picked by librarians to give you the "best of the best"
in each genre. Simply do a search for "Nook" in our library catalog.
Can I add or delete books from the Nook?
No, patrons may not remove or add content.
If I borrow a Nook, do I have to complete the survey, and who do I give it to?
Because this is a pilot project, we ask that all participants complete the survey and return it with the Nook to a service desk.
Must I return the Nook to the branch I borrowed it from?
No, you may return the Nook to a service desk at any of our 28 Sacramento Public Library locations.
I need help navigating the Nook. What should I do?
Please see the "Navigating Your Nook" video. There is also an instructional handout included in each Nook carrying case.
Who do I call with questions?
You may call our telephone reference line at 916-264-2920.
