At Edinburgh Libraries we are having a week long celebration of digital reading! With your library membership you can download ebooks, audiobooks, magazines and newspapers all for free. So make the most of your tablet, smart phone or computer and get reading today! We’ll be doing a new blog post every day this week highlighting our digital reading services for you.
We are running two competitions as part of our celebration! Simply borrow an ebook or audiobook on OverDrive to be entered into a prize draw to win a Fire Tablet. Borrow an audiobook on BorrowBox and similarly you can win an iPad. These competitions will run from the 31st October till the 14th November.
So give yourself a treat (and maybe a new tablet!) and try out some of the following resources this week –
OVERDRIVE – over 10,000 ebooks and audiobooks for adults, teens and children to borrow 24/7
ZINIO – a great range of 116 popular magazines for men and women
