PORTSMOUTH libraries have announced a new audio book service available across the city.

Everyone with a library card will be able to visit the OneClickdigital website and sign up to browse hundreds of titles which are ready to download.

David Percival, learning and engagement manager at Portsmouth City Council, said: ‘We’re delighted to offer this service to our library users; it’s great news for those who prefer to listen to their books.

‘If you’re in a rush to catch up with the latest bestsellers, there’s no waiting and no fines. If you’re not a member of Portsmouth Libraries, there’s never been a better time to join.’

Lindy Elliott, library services manager at the council, said: ‘I am pleased that we have been able to work with OneClickdigital to bring a wide selection of e-audio books to Portsmouth residents.

‘Libraries hold so many great books, both fiction and non-fiction, so it’s fantastic news that these are now even more accessible for everyone in the community to download and enjoy.’

The new service is free and allows people to download 10 titles at a time, for three weeks each. Once you have downloaded the file you can listen to it on your computer and most mp3 players.
