Lithgow Library invites you to participate in Library & Information Week from the 20th to 24th May 2019 when the library will be providing the first of a series of digital information sessions.

The convenience of electronic resources allows you to take a library with you anywhere on your personal device. From Rb Digital’s suite of eBooks, eMagazines and e-Audios to our streaming service, Beamafilm which is Australia’s premium movie streaming channel for true stories and independent voices. The catalogue of movies has been carefully curated to include over 500 award-winning documentaries, independent features and festival favourites to delight, inspire and entertain you. Many of the films can only be found on Beamafilm.

Ziptales is an online literacy website, custom built by digital publishers with a background in teaching and with a mission to make reading fun for all primary age children. They offer over 550 modules of educational content including a ‘Preschool’ section (ages 3-5), a ‘Developing Literacy’ section (ages 5-8), and an ‘Extending Literacy’ section, (Years 3 to 6, ages 8-12).

The stories range from very simple texts at the beginner reader level, up to sophisticated narratives for older children. All Ziptales content is aligned to the National Curriculum and is designed for school, home and library use.

Haynes All Access is a database available for anyone with an interest in cars and motorcycles; from undertaking an oil change to understanding how our car works.

“Lithgow Library continues to provide exceptional resources and support to the Lithgow community. Beamafilm offers streaming of quality documentaries, films and Australian content while Ziptales offers educational puzzles, games and tools for children of all ages,” said Mayor Cr Ray Thompson.

You will need to be a member of the library to access these resources, so if you aren’t currently a member drop into any of the branches at Lithgow, Portland or Wallerawang to join.  Membership is free and is open to all residents of the Lithgow Council area. For more information contact the Lithgow Library on 6352 9100.
