A Windfall for Lithgow Book Lovers!

Posted: 28 Aug 2020
Lithgow Library Learning Centre has ramped up its online digital content in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak with the launch of an innovative new platform called indyreads which gives local Library members access to over 11,000 new eBooks and audiobooks from home for free.

Developed by the State Library of NSW, indyreads gives Lithgow Library Learning Centre members 24/7 access to a range of eBooks, including fiction titles by well-known and popular authors, poetry collections, cookbooks, educational books, local studies resources and much more.

According to Mayor Ray Thompson, “The indyreads online content is a great addition to our Library collection and will help locals stay entertained through the self-isolation and social distancing measures currently in place across the State. I am particularly enjoying being able to access such a wealth of fiction by Australian authors.”

“Indyreads also includes books from independent Australian and international publishers as well as the best examples of self-publishing, offering communities a greater diversity of stories," says Ross Balharrie, indyreads project coordinator at the  State Library of NSW.

“With indyreads Library members can get a lot more variety with something for every reader – from high quality self-published works by local writers to international award-winning authors, modern classics, and even books in languages other than English,” says Mr Balharrie.
