1. What will you be accessing?
Prefer to listen to a story on the go rather than sitting down and reading? Wanting to browse the latest magazines? All these choices will influence which eLibrary platform you use. Our eLibrary can give you access to eBooks, eAudiobooks or eMagazines.
2. Choose your eLibrary platform
Eastern Regional Libraries has 4 main eBook and eAudiobook platforms, all of which are free and accessible on a range of devices from your phone or tablet to your home computer or laptop. The reason we have 4 apps is due to platforms tying up the rights to content from different publishers. This gives our members a wider range of choice when it comes to accessing content.
3. Time to download
If you are wanting to access content on a smart phone or tablet, the first thing you should do is download the relevant app. It is free to download any of the eLibrary apps. If you aren’t sure how to download an app, give us a call on 1300 737 277 and we can walk you through it.
3. Logging in
Each app requires you to have a valid Eastern Regional Libraries membership. If you aren’t a member, you can join the library here. Sigining in requires different steps on each app and may require you to also enter aditional information.
If you cannot login, try the following troubleshooting steps:
If you still cannot login, contact your local branch or call 1300 737 277.
4. Explore the collection and get borrowing
Once downloaded and logged in, each app will allow you to explore, browse and search a wide range of items. You can also use our online catalogue to find out which digital platform has the item you are after, rather than searching multiple times. If an item isn’t available, you can place reservations or add them to a wish list. Each app is different in how much you can reserve and loan.
