LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A new feature will soon be coming to the Kurth Memorial Library in Lufkin.
The library will soon start to offer e-books. They will be available for a seven day rental on smart phones, tablets and computers.
Not every title in the current library catalog will be available in e- book form.
The library is adding the new e-books in hopes that it will offer more to people with the newest technology devices.
"We already have a lot of other formats that we offer books in. This is just one more format that has come out and a lot of people are asking for it. So we wanted people to have this additional format for getting books," said Library Director, Lorraine Simoneau.
You will have to have a valid membership card with no outstanding fines in order to get the new material.
The library will officially start checking out the material on March 25.
