“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.”
