Travel light – borrow an e-book for your holiday

by Gemma Melling

If you’re looking forward to going on holiday and relaxing with a good book, you might be interested to know that Knowsley Library Service offers a great selection of e-books for you to download or read online. It will save you space in your luggage too!

All you need to borrow an e-book is a Library membership number and PIN. If you’re not already a member, simply e-mail yourlibrary@knowsley.gov.uk with your name, address and postcode to join.

Browse through hundreds of titles, both fiction and non-fiction for adults, teenagers and children, and make your selection from the catalogue of online e-books or downloadable e-books.

You can borrow a total of two downloadable e-books for up to 21 days, after which they will automatically expire unless you renew them – so there’s no need to worry about remembering to take them back once you’re home again.

There’s no limit to the number of online e-books you can borrow – and, again, no possibility of going overdue with them.

Once you’ve made your selection, you can read your e-book on your laptop, tablet or smartphone – wherever you happen to be on holiday.
