NEW YORK (AP) - Amazon says its Kindle e-reader will get the ability to load e-books from 11,000 U.S. public libraries later this year.

Most U.S. libraries already provide e-books, which work with nearly all e-readers except the Kindle. They’re also accessible on many smartphones and tablets like the iPad.

Amazon.com Inc. says it’s working with OverDrive Inc., which runs the e-book systems of public libraries to make the system compatible with the Kindle.
