Lithgow Library’s Digital Resources are Moving to the Libby Reading App

Lithgow Library digital resources, previously available through the RBdigital app, will be moving to the Libby app from Thursday 25 February 2021.

OverDrive, the leading digital reading platform for libraries and schools worldwide and creator of the Libby app, recently acquired RBdigital.  For those already using RBdigital, any eBooks checked out in the RBdigital app will be available for the remainder of the lending period, so readers can finish the title without disruption. Holds will not be moved, but Library patrons may export their Transaction History from the RBdigital app then borrow or place holds on those titles again in Libby.

The move will take place on Wednesday 24 February and during this time access to both apps may be unavailable.

With a valid Library card, all members of the community can borrow from the Library’s digital and physical collections.  Readers of all ages can select from virtually every subject ranging from mystery, romance, children’s, business and more in a variety of formats. Becoming a member of the Library is free. 

For more information on the Lithgow Library’s services, collections, the move to Libby or any other Library electronic services head to http://library.lithgow.com/, or contact the Lithgow Library on 63529100. 

Join Julietta Henderson in Your Living Room

Join us online in conversation with Julietta Henderson to discuss her debut novel, “The Funny Thing About Norman Forman”. 

Julietta is a new Australian fiction writer, making us journey through our many emotions as we disappear into her writing. Julietta is a full time writer, dividing her time between Melbourne and the UK and wherever she can find winter.

“The Funny Thing About Norman Forman”, is described as the equivalent of a feel good British comedy film. This is a tale about coming to terms with profound loss. If you enjoyed “Little Miss Sunshine”, or the “Rosie Project”, then this novel will be your next page-turning summer read.

NSW Public libraries are pleased to present a series of online author events. This event is being facilitated through Zoom, and will take place online on Thursday 25 February 2021 at 6.30 pm.

Andrew Pippos in your Living Room

Join us at 6:30pm from the comfort of your home on Wednesday 17 February when Lithgow Library Learning Centre kicks off its 2021 online author talks with Andrew Pippos and his debut novel “Lucky’s”.

Andrew Pippos is a former journalist with a doctorate in Creative Writing who uses his skills, experiences from his youth and visits to his family’s café, “Café De-Luxe” in regional New South Wales to lay the foundation of his work as a writer.

“Lucky’s” is described as a “must-read saga, and a gripping monument to Greek diaspora” by the Guardian Australia. Central to the theme of “Lucky’s” is the iconic Greek milk bar, found in so many Australian country towns. Reminisce about your own experiences and Lithgow’s local heritage whilst reading “Lucky’s”.

Bookings are required for this free online event being held Wednesday 17 February 2021 at 6.30 pm. To book and receive your link and passcode click on the Eventbrite link provided below.
