About Amazon Households and Family Library

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:

  • Two adults, each with their own Amazon account.
  • Up to four children, whose profiles are created from an adult’s account.

You can share Kindle books and apps and games with Family Library.

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.
