Reading during Lock-down

We may not be able to use our library as we used to but here are some useful links to e-books and other material you may be interested in. If anyone has further links you’d like to share, then please post  suggestions under COMMENT at the bottom of this page and we’ll be happy to include them.

Our CloudLibrary is available for borrowers to download e-books and e-audio books. CloudLibrary works in the same way as a physical library so once one person ‘takes out’ a book it is not available for anyone else to borrow. We share our e-library with other library authorities providing lots of choice, if a title belonging to Shropshire Libraries is on loan you will be able to place a hold on it (request it). Please note to receive email notification when holds are available you will need to add your email address in your settings. Holds are held available to download for 3 days. All you need is your library card number and PIN to access CloudLibrary.
