Book lovers from the Belford area are invited to learn more about downloading E-books or digital copies of favourite titles.
Bell View, a charity based in Belford, is working with Northumberland Libraries to put digital media at the fingertips of library members anywhere and at any time.
Recently expanded services now include E-books – with collections including classic titles, best-selling fiction, non-fiction and a range for children and young people.
Using a library membership card and pin number, users can browse the titles available and borrow items to download and enjoy on all major computers, tablets and E-readers. Titles also automatically expire at the end of the lending period so there are no late fees!
Centre manager Paul Harrison said: “There has been a huge increase in people accessing media through electronic devices, which for some can seem daunting or an impossible task. We want to break down those barriers and enable older people in particular to enjoy the option of eBooks.”
Why not give it a go on Wednesday, October 16 from 2pm until 3pm, at Bell View on West Street. There is no charge for this session and you don’t even need to own an E-reader.
