Ebooks and audiobooks

There is a new shared ebook and audiobook service with LibrariesWest. The resources of 8 local authorities have been pooled to bring a much larger and more comprehensive range of titles to choose from.

Existing eBook and audiobook customers

If you've been reading eBooks through Askew's or listening to audiobooks through RB Digital, you will no longer be able to do so from the end of August 2018 as our contracts with these suppliers have come to an end.

Any eBooks or audiobooks you have already borrowed will last until the end of the current loan period, but any reservations that have not been downloaded will no longer be available.
