Sony announces Reader Library program

Earlier this week, Sony announced the launch of a new Reader Library program to promote digital reading at public libraries. According to the press release, the program will provide public libraries with an online training program about Sony’s Reader devices, educational materials to help library patrons learn about e-books, e-readers for use by library staff, and bi-annual update sessions to keep libraries informed about the latest content and devices.

The new program is open to public libraries with “robust eBook lending programs.”
