New Electronic Resources at Lithgow Library

Source: Lithgow City Council
Posted: 22 Dec 2018
Access Lithgow Library’s free new electronic resources – Beama Films, a movie and documentary streaming service and Ziptales an electronic educational and storytelling resource.


The convenience of electronic resources allows you to take the Library with you anywhere on your personal device. Our new streaming service, Beamafilm 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. The Ziptales mission is to make reading fun for all primary age children. They offer over 550 modules of educational content. The online resources are broken up into 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).

Ziptales contains a very large ‘library’ of over 300 stories which are all completely original and written by professional authors with a strong interest in education. 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.

“It is great to see that in this digital era, Lithgow Library is moving with the times by providing exceptional online resources to the Lithgow community. I am also very pleased to see the emphasis on local content which helps us to better understand ourselves and our country,” said Mayor Ray Thompson.

You will need to be a member of the library to access the 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.
