Virtual Reading in Ealing
eLibrary launches locally
The eLibrary can be accessed at http://llc.lib.overdrive.com. Users will need to download free software to their Windows or Mac computer or a compatible smartphone.
Once items have been ‘checked out’ they can be transferred to portable devices such as Ipods or e-readers. Unlike a conventional library there is no need to ‘return’ a borrowed item as they are deleted automatically from the user’s computer when the lending period is over.
“The eLibrary is a wonderful new addition to the many services our libraries already offer. Through the eLibrary people can now enjoy borrowing books through Ealing’s libraries without leaving their home. We hope this new service will make our books even more accessible to Ealing residents.
The new eLibrary service is managed by London Library Consortium on behalf of Ealing libraries.
