There is a lot of interest across the region for electronic books or e-books, books in digital form that can be read from a dedicated e-book reader such as the Kindle, Nook and Sony Reader among many. Or, they can be read from a smart phone, tablet, notebook or desktop computer. The Library is currently investigating the feasibility and cost of providing e-books to our patrons. In the meantime, we suggest you look at Project Gutenberg which has a large selection of e-books (around 30,000) for FREE download. These are not the newest books, but are copyright free and availible for the public. Check the links in the right hand column for other free e-book resources.
Audio Books are becoming avery popular way of "reading a book." No longer a service for those with poor vision, audio books are popular with drivers (particularly truck drivers), walkers, and those doing chores around the house. Our audio books come in many formats. These include cassette tape, CD Rom, MP3 ROM and Playaway preloaded audio books.
Not only do we have audio books for adults, but we also have a growing collection for young people. These are particularly "cool" with typical non-reading boys. Give them a go!
Look and see what new audio books the Library has acquired in the last 30 days by clicking the link above.
