Amazon announces Kindle Library Lending. Anyone with a library card can borrow Kindle books from their public library. Currently 11,000 libraries participate in the program:

We’re excited that millions of Kindle customers will be able to borrow Kindle books from their local libraries … 

Public library users can now select Kindle books as an option when checking out e-books through Overdrive, the company that manages most public library e-book collections. Users will then be directed to Amazon’s web site where they select to borrow the Kindle book. It will be automatically downloaded and all annotations and highlights will be preserved even after the digital borrowing period is over.
