The Northumberland library service has increased the number of digital books available to its members.
The Northumberland digital library provides free access to thousands of eBooks, eAudiobooks and digital copies of newspaper and magazines.
Over 300 new eBooks have just been added to the digital library BorrowBox to give readers even more choice. These include popular new titles: A Year on Our Farm by Matt Baker, Apples Never Fall by Liane Moriarty, Together by Jamie Oliver, Forgive Me by Susan Lewis and titles from popular crime series Jack Reacher by Lee Child and Roy Grace by Peter James. Netflix favourites such as Bridgerton and You are also available.
All you need to access the resources is your library card and PIN. If you aren’t already a library member you can join for free by logging on to mylibrary.co.uk and following the simple instructions.
Northumberland County Councillor, Jeff Watson, cabinet member with responsibility for culture said:
“Whether you want to do some reading yourself or you’re looking for books for the kids, there’s a wealth of material you can access online free of charge.
“While we appreciate that many people still prefer books, we also know that more and more people are reading using digital devices and our digital library offers instant and easy access to a vast choice of reading material.”
If there is an author or title you would like to see in the digital library, then please let library staff know by filling in the online request form stating whether you would like it in eBook or eAudiobook. While it is not always possible to purchase customer suggestions, the library team will try to help where they can.
If you need help setting up your device to access the digital library, contact the Digital Helpline via 0345 600 6400 and an appointment will be arranged to talk you through the process. All help is free of charge, private and done by library staff.
Or, if you prefer, go to nland.uk/help where you can fill in a short form with details of the help you need, and someone will get back to you.
