The library offers two eBook borrowing platforms; Bolinda Borrowbox and Wheelers. 

Both have free app downloads from iTunes and Google Play.

There is a huge range of contemporary titles of eBooks and eAudio - talking books; great for in the car or when you’re exercising.

Some new release titles include The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern, Blue Moon by Lee Child, Me by Elton John, 488 Rules For Life by Kitty Flanagan, and Dead Man Switch by Tara Moss.
