“Accessing the library catalogue and making use of our digital services is really simple.”

“If you have a computer at home you’re ready to go.”

“Library members are now able to access and download books and information on whole range of digital devices from i-pads and other tablet computers, smartphones, notebooks and PC’s, and most e-book readers.”

“The Ruapehu library service has joined with over 140 other NZ libraries as part of a research system called EPIC which gives our members access to thousands of high quality electronic publications including; full text journals, newspapers, magazines, photographs, graphics and much more.”

“The on-line resources that library members can access are always being updated with the latest information and findings which make them perfect for homework or anyone studying or doing research,” she said.
