Borrow-a-Nook Pilot Program

Borrow-a-Nook Pilot Program


The UCR Library is lending Nook e-readers!  We have 10 Nooks, each loaded with one of two collections. Each collection has ~17 titles (see the title lists below).  You can check out a Nook just like a book. 

This program was made possible through a vendor promotion in which the UCR Library won the 10 Nooks

Please try them out, and let us know how you like them!
