What can I read if the library is closed?
Make use of our free e-books, movies, digital magazines, e-audio books and e-newspapers — available online 24/7.
If we do not have a book title you are interested in, please email email@example.com and we will do our best to add it to our collection.
Can I borrow physical books and other items?
Yes, by using our "Pick and Post" service. Just place a reservation for up to 10 books or other items (excluding magazines) at a time, and your reserved items will arrive at your home by mail or courier. It couldn't be simpler!

You can still borrow from our great range of e-books and e-audiobooks and more.
