eBooks are now easier than ever to borrow

by Gemma Melling

Borrowing an e-Book from Knowsley’s libraries has never been so easy now that you can join the e:library by email.

This is great news if you have a tablet or smartphone as you don’t even need to leave the comfort of your armchair to join the e:library!

Once you’re registered you can take your pick from hundreds of free e-Books in the online catalogue. Of course you can also access a wider range of books, social activities, training courses, help desk and other resources in the branch libraries but we know that sometimes it’s great to have access online too!

Joining the library by email

If you’re not already a member of the library you can now join by simply emailing yourlibrary@knowsley.gov.uk with your name, address and postcode. Knowsley Library Service will issue you with a membership number and PIN, which is all you need to start borrowing free e-Books.

Borrowing e-Books

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

Once you have selected a title you can read it online or download it onto your computer, tablet or smartphone.

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. There’s no limit, however, to the number of online eBooks you can borrow.

So, what are you waiting for?
