Another Chance To Try Before You Buy At Cambridgeshire Libraries

Bar Hill Library
E-books are now available from Cambridgeshire Libraries – library members just need a computer, e-book reader, tablet or smartphone to download them.

The event at Huntingdon Library on Monday 15 July, 11am-1pm has been organised in partnership with John Lewis, Heffers, Waterstones and WHSmith. Experts will be on hand to help anyone wanting to know more about e-book readers, tablets and other devices that can be used to download e-books.

Cambridgeshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education and Learning, Councillor David Harty said "There won’t be any devices for sale on the day – this is purely an opportunity to try out the different options there are out there and get some advice from those in the know. The introduction of e-books into our libraries is another part of our commitment to provide a 21st Century Library Service. Once you know how and have the technology it’s another great way to access a growing range of titles and make the most of your library service."

Local Parish Councillor Andy Pellew added "It is worth pointing out that it's not just e-books that are available - there is a tremendous range of audio books also available online for free to everyone with a library card."

"Cambridgeshire Libraries are there for everyone - not just the people who visit one of the libraries - I'd encourage everyone to give it a try".
