Win a free tablet at St Helens Libraries eBooks to borrow launch!

You can now borrow eBooks for your e-reader from all St Helens Libraries and all you need is your library card and an internet connection.

“This is a great step forward for St Helens Libraries,” says Sue Williamson, head of Library Services.

“We are showing that we are able to adapt to new demand. We’re making life easier for the e-book readers of the borough, who until now, would have not only had to buy books to read on their device, but would have also shied away from visiting our 13 libraries, thus missing out on everything else we have to offer.”

You can borrow up to five eBooks at any one time, plus there are no fines as the eBook is wiped from your device when the loan period ends. It couldn’t be simpler!

E-Readers/Tablets that are compatible with our new service include:






Windows Phone

Kindle Fire



It’s so easy to get started!

Simply download the free overdrive mobile app from the App Store or Play Store, or from

If you want to read your eBooks on your laptop or computer, you can go directly to the St Helens Libraries site at

“We’re so thrilled to be able to offer this free service to our customers. We have over 1,000 titles to choose from, so come and give it a try!” added Sue.

This brand-new and exciting service is up and running now and library staff, supported by staff from Barclays Bank, will be on hand to support you and help you get started at Central Library on Wednesday, April 23, between 10am and 2pm.

Don’t forget to bring your e-reader or smartphone and you’ll also be in with a chance of entering a free prize draw to win a tablet!
