Darlington Libraries users are able to access hundreds of eBooks and eAudiobooks at home and on the go, as part of BorrowBox – a new digital service.
The service, which is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, has a wide range of eBooks and eAudiobooks available to download onto a computer or mobile device to read and listen to.
The BorrowBox library contains hundreds of fiction and non-fiction titles from authors including Lee Child, Bill Bryson, Ruth Rendell, Jeffrey Archer, Paula Hawkins and James Patterson.
Meanwhile, young readers can access stories from the likes of David Walliams, J. K. Rowling and Roald Dahl, to name just a few.
New titles are added to the service every month, and there are no charges for books being overdue, as items will be automatically returned at the end of the three-week loan period. Users can borrow up to five eBooks and five eAudiobooks at a time.
Michael Wilkinson (pictured), senior library officer at Darlington Libraries helped launch the new service.
Speaking about the launch, he said: “The new BorrowBox service offers access to your library in one app.
“It incorporates a dedicated eBook reader and eAudiobook player and gives people access to a host of best-selling authors from wherever they may be for free.
“It’s a great new addition to our service, it’s simple to use and enjoy, and is the perfect solution for anyone who may struggle to get into the library itself or find books too heavy to carry.”
Wilkinson added: “It takes just a few minutes to sign up and gives access to a fantastic range of digital books to suit every taste. They are compatible with most devices, free to borrow and there are no late fees to pay.”
