Cheshire West and Chester Libraries launched a new free e-books service in July and are about to start a marketing and publicity campaign to increase the number of e-books being "borrowed."

The e-books service is free to all library members and users can download titles direct to their PCs, iPads, tablets, smartphones, or to a Kindle Fire via the Overdrive App. Over 1500 books have been downloaded since July.

There are currently 2000 titles available for loan, including children's and non-fiction titles.

Users can download up to 4 e-book titles at any one time, in addition to their 20 physical library items, and Titles can be loaned for 14 or 21 days and there are no late fees or charges. Library members can place holds on titles they wish to borrow and also recommend titles for purchase.

The service is supplied by Overdrive and is available from the Cheshire Libraries Catalogue here

Members who join online should visit their library to upgrade their membership
