Are there any programs that allow library books to be checked out, as ebooks, specifically in Germany?

NOTE: Based on this meta post and this question, I have created this German version of the question.

Not a real library, but if you have an Amazon Prime account (€50 p/a) in Germany you can borrow Kindle books, but only when you read them on a Kindle device. – Anthon Mar 9 '14 at 15:21

Most libraries in Germany are in my opinion joined with Onleihe. They have a website where you can see which library is connected by clicking on a map to select your Bundesland (Hessen, Bayern, etc.)
