Learning at your library

The microfilm reader within Grays library is temporarily unavailable. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Using e-books and e-magazines

Our free e-books and e-magazines sessions can show you how to download free electronic books, magazines and audio onto your personal device wherever you are.

e-books and e-magazines sessions are available in all libraries or online.

We will show you how to:

  • create a free account with the Borrowbox and Libby apps
  • download the apps to your device.
  • search, reserve and download e-books and e-audio titles
  • search and download e-magazines.
  • set-up alerts for new magazine issues

You'll be able to take your reading with you wherever you are – on holiday, on the train or at home – using your smartphone, tablet device or desktop computer. You can bring your smartphone or tablet with you when you come to the library.

Sessions last 2 hours, and you can come to as many as you like.
