Our new library.

We have just opened a new library. It’s not a building though, it’s a digital branch. OneClickdigital now includes eBooks as well as eAudiobooks. There are three thousand titles to choose from -crime, romance, history, biographies, children’s books – there is something for everybody and new titles will be added in the future. All you need is to visit the site and enter your library card number, create an account, download the app suitable for your device and choose your books. It’s very easy to use and if you do have any problems there is an excellent helpdesk service.eBooks are issued for three weeks just like conventional books, you can renew them and there are no late return fines to pay. You may be tempted by a talking book as well; the choice is excellent. We also have a magazine service too, Zinio , with a wide selection of popular consumer magazines and lots of useful reference titles. Your library card is the key to a whole range of free services you can use from home so why not visit our digial library today.

    Libraries are making their way into the future! Wakefield Libraries are now offering a digital branch to their libraries. Find out more here.

  2. Thank you for helping us spread the word, Sleepy Book Dragon.

  3. I think it’s a great idea too. Selection is pretty limited, don’t know if thats because of lack of library funding, or just a paucity of books on OneClick. And Adobe DRM is appalling, but the publishers will insist.

    • There are nearly 3000 books on the site with a selection of fiction, non-fiction and children’s books. I hope you have been able to find some to enjoy but if authors you would like to read are not available this is because at the moment most major UK publishers refuse to licence their ebooks for use by public libraries. We should be able to add fresh titles from one big publisher in the next few weeks and hope that the results of a year long trial between the Publishers Association and selected library services which is due next year will persuade more publishers to allow us to buy their ebooks.
