The convenience of electronic resources allows you to take a library with you anywhere on your personal device. Take a month’s worth of books on your overseas holiday without carrying the weight, access current magazines in the doctor’s office or listen to an audiobook while you are in the car. The possibilities are endless and only restricted by the content available from your library.

It can be accessed from a personal computer or you can learn on the go via an iOS or Android app. Library members can learn to listen, speak, read and write a new language or for those new to English it provides beginner English for speakers of more than 25 languages.
