Dear Library Member,
While our libraries are still temporarily closed due to the Coronavirus pandemic we wanted to reassure you that we have been busy behind the scenes ensuring that we are still able to provide you with library services 24/7!
Keeping you reading:
1000s of e books, audiobooks, and even magazines, newspapers and comics are available to download for free! Whether you’re looking for the latest issue of BBC Good Food magazine, a great book to read or listen to just visit www.librarieswest.org.uk for more information. We’ve recently increased the number of available titles – more than 800 new e books & 1400 new audio books so there’s now even more choice, with more being added each week!
Keeping you entertained:
We’ve now got a vibrant events and activities programme happening across social media, including regular story-times, rhyme times and Lego clubs for children and books groups and author events for adults – and all for free! Find us on Twitter (twitter.com/DorsetLibraries) and Facebook (facebook.com/DorsetLibraries). We’ve also got a free trial of Medici.TV available to library members providing an inspiring programme of classical music, ballet and opera accessible from home. Ancestry Library Edition is now available from home for library members so if you are interested in researching your family tree, take a look - you just need to log in to your LibrariesWest account to access this.
Spread the word!
Tell your friends and family to join Dorset Libraries online for free by sharing this link: https://www.librarieswest.org.uk/join - a membership number and PIN will be generated to enable access to free e-books, e-audio books, e-magazines and e-comics. Once our buildings re-open, people who have joined online can call in to a library to upgrade their membership so they can also borrow books, DVDs and talking books.
We look forward to welcoming you back to our libraries when we re-open – for anyone who borrowed items just before libraries were closed in March, please be assured that you will NOT incur any overdue charges.
