You can share select Kindle books and digital content with the other adults and children in your Amazon Household through Family Library.
In order to use Family Library to share content with another adult, you must first join an Amazon Household together. Members of an Amazon Household include:
You can share Kindle books, apps and games, and audiobooks with Family Library. You can also share Kindle books that you are borrowing from a public library and Kindle books that are on loan to you through personal lending. Active content can be shared and used on compatible e-readers.
Kindle textbook rentals are compatible with Family Library, though you may be limited in the number of devices you can download them to.
Note: Music, magazines and newspapers, subscriptions accessed through apps, games and software downloads from outside Amazon Appstore, books and magazines borrowed via Kindle Unlimited, and purchased or rented Amazon Video titles cannot be shared with the added adult in your Family Library or Amazon Household.
