I own a Nook Color.

And it can do some basic web access at the public library. Sadly there is not enough detail about all this but the Nook Color is a great value.

Thanx for the responce Bob. Do you mean the kindle has limited access to the library?

OK, I own a kindle too.

Since it only has it's cellular access it has no need to access wifi at the library but it's web access is something of a mystery. Very few web pages work with it.

Since I own both I can answer some questions but you'll have to define what this library access is.

library access

What I mean by that is; can you download books via the library?:

Only if the library has a program to do so.

The Kindle is not a library friendly machine. Those other readers that can do other formats are a better choice.

Since I can't see what this library uses I have to keep with the generic.

Check with the library first.
