Free E-Books from Libraries in Wales


WHY not start planning your next summer holiday with the help of free e-books from Welsh libraries? They now offer a great e-books service which has more than 6,600 titles to choose from. There is a great selection of travel guides available for you to download at your leisure.

Wayne John of Neath Port Talbot Libraries said: "This project is proving to be very popular and the fact that the books are free is a real bonus, especially in current times. Libraries are free to join and once a member you can log on to the e-books website - at home or remotely - and download the e-books to your computer and then transfer them to your e-book reader or ipad. The only device you can't use is the Kindle, because this device only works with Amazon's software.

The process is really simple as well; you don't even have to leave your sofa! Just make sure you are a member of your local library and log on to the e-books for Wales website.

For a full list of participating authorities and details of how to download free e-books visit www.librarywales.org Inspired by the Olympics to get into sport? Why not download free e-books on the topics of your favourite sports or sporting heroes. And what's more, they are all for free!

Twenty authorities in Wales are now part of a free e-books scheme which allows you to choose from a collection of over 6,600 titles. You don't even have to go to your library to download them; you can access the site on the move and download the e-book straight to your i-phone or e-reader device.
