With Family Library, you can share select Kindle books with the other members of your Amazon Household. You can link Amazon accounts to create an Amazon Household from your Kindle e-reader.
You can use Family Library on Kindle Paperwhite (5th Generation) and newer e-reader devices. See Which Kindle E-reader Do I Have? if you're not sure which Kindle e-reader model you're using.
You can find content shared through Family Library in the Cloud tab of your Kindle. On your Kindle, filter by My Books or Shared Books to choose what content you are viewing.
For more information, go to About Amazon Households and Family Library.
To share content using Family Library, both adults need to authorize each other to use the payment methods associated with their Amazon accounts. This will not affect either adult’s current payment settings. Each adult can copy the payment method of the other adult to their Amazon account.
If you disable content sharing any payment methods that were copied to the other Amazon account will be deleted automatically.
You can have up to four child profiles in your Amazon Household and choose which content is shared with your kids.
Note: If you have already created the maximum number of child profiles, the option to add a new person will be unavailable.
Note: Your device needs a wireless connection to access any profiles created from the Amazon website. To learn more about connecting your device wirelessly, go to Connect to Wi-Fi.
After leaving the Amazon Household, you will both lose access to any content, payment methods, and Prime benefits that were shared from the other adult.
Note: If either adult leaves the Amazon Household, both adults will be unable to join an Amazon Household with a different adult for 180 days. If you’ve accidentally left an Amazon Household go to Manage Your Household to rejoin an Amazon Household with the same person.
