Amazon Kindle to Have Library Lending in the Not Too Distant Future

Although Amazon is not saying "when" it will be available, it is now saying that being able to check out books from your local library is coming to the Kindle.
The best part for a lot of us, me included, is that you can do this with  your Kindle or the Kindle App on your favorite device.
It looks like 11,000 libraries will be on board with this, although they are all in the US at this time.  There is no word on exactly how this will work, but it's intriguing.  There are many books out there that I would like to read, but I don't really feel like buying.  Hopefully this new function will expand my mind with out narrowing my wallet.
I'll post more info on this as it becomes available.
