Libraries lend electronic books
Woy Woy and Umina libraries now have an electronic book collection available to customers with over 1000 titles including fiction, non-fiction and young adult.
The collection was launched by master story-teller, author and actress Judy Nunn on Friday, March 2, at the Erina Library.
Gosford Council's manager of library services Mr Alan Flores said that the e-book collection created an unparalleled level of convenience and greater access to the library service.
"Residents will be able to browse the many titles currently in the collection anytime, day or night.
"Library members will have the opportunity to start downloading e-books from our online library catalogue onto a compatible e-reader, tablet or smart phone.
"This is another arm to the wonderful service provided by our libraries.
"We are committed to continuing to develop new and innovative ways to make books accessible to our entire community in a range of print and electronic formats," said Mr Flores.
File types supported by the e-book collection include WMV, MVA, EPub, MP3 and MP4.
