Library Beyond Walls, the MCFL in-home delivery service for library users no longer able to visit our facilities, is now lending pre-loaded Nook Simple Touch e-readers to qualified applicants. Unlike our Nook Color e-readers that are available to any adult library user (with a signed agreement), these e-readers are text-only.  The Simple Touch is both smaller and considerably lighter than the Nook Color, even with its protective cloth cover.

The greatest advantage of this e-reader is that it offers crystal sharp text that can be adjusted...

This format is especially helpful for people with diminished eyesight since the text size can be so easily adjusted. 

It is just another example of how MCFL continues to explore and invest in technologies that support the enjoyable habit of reading.
