eBooks & eAudiobooks

We have a huge selection of eBooks and eAudio, which you can search directly from our catalogue.

Our eBook collection functions through two eBook portals -ePlatform/ Wheelers and Libby/Overdrive. 

To read eBooks on your device, you'll need to download either Wheeler's ePlatform app or Overdrive's Libby app. Our library staff can help you set these up or follow the instructions below.

You’ll need a library membership number and library PIN code to login. If you don’t have a PIN code, contact the library to set one up.

Once you’ve borrowed an eBook, it downloads to your device, where you can read even when offline. There are no hold or overdue fees, and the eBooks self return.
