The Boca Campus Library continues to loan E-readers (2 Kindles and 3 Nooks). They are pre-loaded with a selection of recent best-sellers, popular fiction and non-fiction books on a variety of topics. The  Library will continue to evaluate the level of interest in e-readers (feedback form)and the subject content that is of interest to FAU users. Feedback gathered will enable us to modify equipment and content purchases, review loan periods, hold queue, policies and procedures.  We hope to increase the number of e-readers and title offerings.To request an e-reader when none are available for check out, please fill out the hold form
