If you’re looking for indoor activities this summer, or something to do if the road’s closed and you’re stuck in traffic, and have a Libraries Horowhenua membership, take a look at their services for lending ebooks, movies, TV shows, audio books, comics and graphic novels:
As the festive season rolls in, we here at Libraries Horowhenua have a shiny new eLibrary gift … a brand new ePlatform to enjoy!
Our eLibrary is a popular service, which is available for free with your Libraries Horowhenua membership or eMembership. …
- Libby/OverDrive is one of our original ePlatforms, and one of the most popular. It has a regularly updated and wide selection of 35,000+ ebooks and eAudiobooks to enjoy.
- Lingogo is the unique library app packed with Māori and Pasifika stories. Perfect for language learners of all ages, it uses an interactive duallanguage format.
- Cloud Library also has a vast ebook and eAudiobook collection, often with less wait times as well as the potential for simultaneous issues on the same book.
Our newest addition is called Hoopla, and is a unique ePlatform that delivers an enormous selection of digital content to our customers, as seamlessly as possible. While it has ebooks and eAudiobooks, it also has music, TV shows and movies on offer, as well as a stellar collection of comics and graphic novels.
Hoopla, like all our other ePlatforms, is available for free with your Libraries Horowhenua membership. All you need to do is go to www. hoopladigital.co.nz, sign up using your email, and then you can access our Libraries Horowhenua catalogue with your card number and password. You can have a maximum of 10 Hoopla borrows in a month. …
All our ePlatforms can be enjoyed as downloadable apps, so technology such as tablets, smartphones, iPads and iPhones are perfect for this. All you need to do is download the required ePlatform app. eReaders are a popular option as well but do note that Kindles are not currently compatible with our free public library content.
A pair of headphones could be a great wee stocking filler so that you can listen to your book on the go or while you potter around the house. The sleep timer functions mean you can also listen in bed, without worrying about falling asleep and missing the vital half of the story!
For more information on our eLibrary, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or go to our website: www. tetakere.org.nz/Your-Library/ Digital-Resources/eLibrary.
