Enjoy Our eBooks Wherever You Are

An eBook is a digital version of a traditional print book. They are perfect for reading at home, 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 can only be read online.

They are a great option for education, entertainment and recreation, providing flexibility, mobility, and 24 hour a day access.

The Library currently subscribes to two eBook platforms on behalf of our members, EBSCO eBooks and Bolinda Digital.
