From November 1st library members will be able to access audiobooks, magazines and eBooks from their mobile device, all in one handy app.
Currently users of Falkirk Libraries’ eBook service
need to download a separate app to access titles. This new one stop shop lets you do it all in one place: Pick a magazine for a quick read on your lunch break, download an audiobook to listen in the car, or find an eBook for when you’re snuggled up in bed.
The app will bring in a range of new, quality ebook titles, covering fiction and non-fiction and books for both adults and children. It also gives access to audiobooks from authors like Ian Rankin, Jeffrey Deaver and JoJo Moyes, as well as popular magazines like Hello! Cosmopolitan, Total Film, TV Times and BBC Good Food. You’ll be able to access all library online services from our Library on Demand page here
