Anyone who has received a tablet, e-reader or computer for Christmas can take advantage of West Sussex’s 24-hour virtual library.

The West Sussex County Council service allows library users to borrow ten ebooks and ten eaudio titles for up to three weeks, as well as giving them access to a range of emagazines and enewspapers for free.

There are no loan charges and loans automatically expire at the end of the lending period so there are no late fees.

Libraries are running a series of free drop-in sessions throughout January and February where residents can find out how to get started with ebooks and other electronic services.

Users can also choose from 100 downloadable magazines covering gardening, cookery, cars, computers and other popular subjects, alongside electronic versions of UK and overseas newspapers.
