Free e-book service from your local library

Members of Bury’s libraries can now get 24/7 free access to a wide selection of e-books.

This new service, provided through Overdrive, gives access to around 700 titles, from popular fiction and adult non-fiction to children’s and teen books.

Borrowing an e-book is very similar to taking out a ‘real’ book. Members can borrow one for three weeks, after which time it will become unreadable and cannot be copied and saved.

Readers can borrow four e-books at one time, and can reserve or ‘tag’ books they may like to read at a later date which also acts as a reminder. 

To use this new service, visit
