The Amazon content is pulled into the browser, not into Koha itself.
(All sorts of legal and practical reasons for this).
But you could configure your firewall for all the OPAC machines (I
assume you are just talking about the OPAC machines physically in the
library, not people accessing the OPAC from home) to restrict access
to just the amazon servers.
So they would only have access to a tiny part of the internet.

Hope this helps
