Edinburgh City Libraries have introduced ‘Library2go’, 24 hour access to hundreds of eBooks and audio books for free to read or listen to on your computer or mobile device. All you need is your library card, bar code number and pin number. (You may have to visit your local library and ask for your membership to be changed to include eBook usage.)
Up to 5 books can be checked out on to your device for 7, 14 or 21 days. Once the lending period has expired the book will check itself back in to the library – you don’t have to do anything.
You can access eBooks via ‘OverDrive’ on your computer (click here for info) or on an iOS or Android device by installing the appropriate app. iOS Device (iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch) click here, Android device click here.
