Yes, if your library pays for the service.

What you do is go to the library website, log in with your library card number and pin number, then choose what you want from the download library. (There are different formats to choose from) When you click the download button for a Kindle book, it redirects to Amazon, where you click Download again to whatever device you have set up on there (I currently have my original kindle, which no longer works, my laptop, my Amazon cloud to choose from.)

I've downloaded several books from my library's website to my kindle (or kindle app on another tablet). As the other posters have said, you do it through your local library system's website, following their directions. The length of the loan is also determined by the library system (2 weeks is common).

If you need more information, call your local library's reference desk. They should be able to help you.

You can also use Overdrive to borrow books. I set it up on my computer but still haven't been able to get it to work.
With Overdrive I believe you can borrow books from libraries other than your own. I'm going to take my laptop into our local library and have them show me what I'm doing wrong and how I can get Overdrive to work. Maybe you can ask about it.
