Engage with all the offerings of your library online; eBooks, eAudiobooks & more



Enjoy eBooks wherever you are!

An eBook is a digital version of a traditionally printed book. They are perfect for reading at home, school, work, or while travelling. eBooks can be read on desktop computers, laptops, smart phones, media players, and many other mobile devices. Some eBooks can be downloaded while others are read online. They are perfect for recreational reading, education, and research, and provide flexibility, mobility, and 24-hour-a-day access.
The Library currently subscribes to four eBook platforms, BorrowBox, Libby, EBSCO eBooks, and IndyReads, which are available free to members.

A new version of the IndyReads™ browser interface has been launched! To view this new interface, you may need to clear your browser cache. The new interface, whilst compatible with the Microsoft Edge browser, is no longer compatible with the older Internet Explorer browser. There has also been an upgrade to both the Android and IOS app, with the search page now containing a format filter for eBooks, Audio Books, and languages. The topics listing has also been collapsed into two separate headings, Fiction and Nonfiction. These categories can be expanded to access the subheadings.

IndyReads™ is a collection of ebooks from independent publishers, self-published authors, and local writers. To access this resource you just need to use your library card number and PIN to borrow, download, and start reading anywhere-anytime.

The IndyReads™ catalogue shows the complete collection of ebooks available for loan. Loans are three weeks (but you can be returned early). At the end of three weeks your loan will expire automatically - just borrow it again if you would like to continue reading.

To get an idea of the amazing content available, visit the IndyReads™ browser portal HERE.

The IndyReads™ app, used to read from this database, is available now from your app store.
