Book lovers in Angus are being offered the opportunity to trial a new e-book service throughout the whole month of July.

The service, Public Library Online, will be on offer to residents through their local library .

Public Library Online offers readers online access to a range of fiction and non-fiction books via your local library. Titles from a wide range of publishers are available including A&C Black, Allen and Unwin, Alma Books, Bloomsbury, Canongate, Faber, Macmillan, Mercier Press, Oneworld Literature, Random House, Quercus, Verve and Wisden.

There are no complicated downloads or decisions on which e-reader device to buy, simply access the books using any internet enabled device either in the library, remotely or from home. You can browse the shelves and enjoy added extras such as reading group guides, reviews and more.

Library members can access Public Library Online from any internet-connected device for free. Non-members can access Public Library Online for free from computers within any Angus library.

It’s easy and free to join the Library and anyone who lives, studies or works in Angus can become a member at any time. Just bring two forms of identification - one must show your current address and one must show your signature.

Residents of Angus can find contact details for all Angus libraries on the council website.

As this service is a trial, library staff are keen to hear feedback from users to help decide whether to purchase the service for Angus.

A short online survey is available and readers are encouraged to send in their views.

If you would like more information or would like staff to show you Public Library Online, please contact your local library.
