What better gift to give this Christmas than the gift of reading – absolutely free?

With a good book (or magazine, etc), you can travel the world from your armchair, engage in different people’s lives or simply enjoy a lovely story – and these flights of imagination are free to the user.

Pop into your local library at Bude and pick up a library card complete with gift presentation card and envelope to to gift to someone, making it feel extra special!

The card can be used straight away to access free eBooks and eAudio books plus Newspapers and Magazines for no subscription cost.

A simple quick registration either online or at a library will enable the new borrower lifetime access with Cornwall Libraries to borrow books, reserve online and much more!

A great gift any time of the year but especially at Christmas – an extra free present to pop under the tree: Free books, magazines, newspapers for life and a whole lot more from your local library.

The eAudiobooks on Borrowbox are hugely popular so another source of eAudio has been added for Cornwall Library borrowers – Naxos Spoken Word Library. This is a massive collection of the world’s greatest literature including classic novels, plays and poetry all the way from medieval times to modern day in an easy to access digital audiobook format.
