Queens Library is lending 50 e-readers loaded with books to library-goers as part of a pilot program to test the concept.

The library said it would start making the e-readers available on Thursday at its Central Library in Jamaica to people with a Queens Library card and photo ID.

The devices come pre-loaded with books in one of five themes -- best-sellers, romances, mysteries, teens' books or children's books.

Each reader also has 50 works of classic literature.

The library said it could expand the program to other locations.
