We reported last week that Penguin Publishing had yanked it’s eTitles from libraries. Overdrive which is the digital provider of eBooks to libraries was told by Penguin to “disable it’s “Get for Kindle” lending function to libraries.

This week, Penguin has reversed it’s decision and is now allowing Overdrive to continue to provide lending privileges of its eTitles to libraries — at least until the end of the year.

Penguin states they are in discussions with Amazon and OverDrive and hope to have a permanent decision by the end of 2011.
