Libraries

All of our libraries will close at 3.30pm on Fri 20th Nov due to level 4 lockdown restrictions. You will not incur any fines during this closure period. 

You can still access thousands of free eBooks and audiobooks from BorrowBox and eMagazines on the RBDigital app.  Download the app from the App Strore or Google Play.

Alternatively, Borrowbox and RBDigital can be accessed from your PC or laptop via our online catalogue - just sign in using your membership number. If you're not currently a library member, but would like to use this free service, contact us via Facebook or Twitter @EAlibraries for more information.  Existing members who need to check their membership numbers can also do so in this way.
