7 On Your Side
Some libraries allow e-book downloads
If you have an old library card and a new iPad, you can now download books for free. Apple has a new iPad application that lets you wirelessly download e-books from your local library. It's free and no late fees.
"The book automatically expires as soon as the due date arrives, so it could be seven, 14 or 21 days depending on the library and right at that date the book is no longer accessible by the user," said Katherine Boehret from the Wall Street Journal.
Now, it only works if your library provides e-books and those that do often have a limited selection.
