Hawkesbury Library Service launches Indyreads

A new partnership with the State Library of NSW provides Hawkesbury residents with access to thousands of new Australian and international eBooks with the launch of an innovative new platform, Indyreads.

More than 11,000 new ebooks and audiobooks can be accessed from home, free of charge. It provides members with 24/7 access to a range of Indyreads and also provides access to a State-wide collection of independent Australian and international titles, classic literature and modern award-winning titles in eBook and eAudio format.

It includes books from independent Australian and international publishers as well as the best examples of self-publishing, offering communities a greater diversity of stories.

To access Indyreads go to www.hawkesbury.nsw.gov.au/library/elibrary/ebooks-and-audiobooks and download the app. Log in and select Hawkesbury Library from the dropdown then use your Library card and PIN.

Now is also the perfect time to take advantage of all the other online collections of eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines offered by Hawkesbury Library Service.
