E-books fly off the shelves

AN e-book lending service in Northumberland is proving a hit.

Northumberland Library Service introduced the facility in April for members to download books to mobile devices and computers.

Almost 2,300 titles have been downloaded and an additional 300 people have joined a library. Now plans are in place to add further titles to the catalogue of 1,200 e-books.

E-books are available to library members through a link on Northumberland County Council’s website. For more details visit www.mylibrary.co.uk
