Anyone with real estate in Rockhampton and a passion for reading will now be able to use their smartphones to borrow and download eBooks from the Rockhampton Region Library.
The Regional Council has recently acquired the BorrowBox application for use by Rockhampton residents, which will let library members get instant access to eBooks and eAudio whenever they want to.
Once the free app is fully installed, library members will have a range of 1,850 eBook titles or 499 eAudio titles to choose from, which they can download and read (or listen to) through their smartphones.
The new app presents an ideal opportunity for Rockhampton residents to take advantage of free library services and some great eBooks, all by simply going online with their smartphones.
Both Australian and international bestselling authors are featured on the available titles, and readers can enjoy an extensive range of some of the most popular eBooks currently at the library.
Councillor Rose Swadling, chair of the Rockhampton Regional Council's Communities Committee, has welcomed the new app.
"Whether our members are hungry for fiction, business advice, biographies, lifestyle writing or stories for young adults and children, there's something for everyone and I'm sure they'll find the perfect title to borrow," Cr Swadling said in a July 17 statement.
