Download Before You Go!

Take Your Library on Holiday!

Gone are the days when packing reading material for your summer holiday meant becoming a packhorse. While we book lovers do appreciate the tactile joys of paper books, eBooks and eAudiobooks have their place, and that is in your suitcase!

The benefits of going digital:

  • With baggage limits on the decline, it’s never been easier to travel light.
  • Read or listen on any device – smart phone, tablet, laptop etc.
  • Read offline – no need to pay for extra data or expensive hotel WiFi. Download before you go!
  • ‘Pack’ as many books as you like!
  • Listen or read – the choice is yours.

This holiday season, KonMari your luggage and bring yourself joy with our extensive range of FREE eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines. Simply enter your library card number and PIN and GO!

Not a library member? Sign up online for a Digital Membership and get instant access!

Psst... kids can be members too, you don't have to share. Download their favourite Andy Griffith or Jeff Kinney book, grab some headphones and enjoy peaceful bliss on any trip. 

Highly recommend:

Frankie Fish series read by Peter Hellier (BorrowBox) or Harry Potter series read by Stephen Fry (Libby) - can't go wrong!
