For book lovers who do not wish to lug a suitcase of books on holiday Blue Mountains Library’s eBooks and eAudiobooks are the perfect answer.
eBooks can be borrowed and read on many different types of device – from Tablets to Computers and Smartphones to eReaders – and are easy to download.
eAudiobooks are a great way to gobble up the hours on a long road trip or just listen to on the beach – download to any MP3 or smartphone device.
To get started you must be a Library member and know your password, then visit the Library’s website (library.bmcc.nsw.gov.au) and look for the Readers Lounge to follow instructions.
There are two free to download, easy to use apps for reading eBooks: Axis 360 for eBooks only and BorrowBox for eBooks and eAudiobooks. The lending period for these eBooks is the same as our physical collection – 3 weeks.
We have a curated collection of eBooks from Project Gutenberg. All titles from Project Gutenberg are freely downloadable and once downloaded, the title is yours to keep.
And for the little ones there isTumbleBooks, collection of animated, talking picture books which teach kids the joy of reading in a format they’ll love. TumbleBooks are created by adding animation, sound, music and narration to existing picture books in order to produce an electronic picture book which you can read, or have read to you.
Call any Library branch if you need help and the friendly staff can talk you through the steps.
