Reading fans who found the latest e-reader gadget in their Christmas stocking can now access e-books from the Middlesbrough library service.

E-books are now available from the digital library for free using Android phones, iPhones, iPads and more.

Users can download up to two e-books at a time for up to 21 days.

The e-books automatically expire at the end of that time, or they can be renewed, so there is no need to remember to return them.

To use this service people just need a Middlesbrough Libraries library card, a PIN and download free software on to their computer, device or phone.

Julie Tweedy, Library Resources Manager, said: “At Middlesbrough Libraries we are really keen to embrace new technology and give people new and convenient ways to access the wonderful world of books.

“The new e-book service is part of that drive and we are sure it will grow in popularity as more people acquire e-readers.”

The top 5 current titles at Middlesbrough libraries e-books are:

‘Hannah's List’ by Debbie Macomber

‘The Borgias’ by Christopher Hibbert

‘The Next Always’ by Nora Roberts

‘The Man Who Left Too Soon’ Biography of Stieg Larsson by Barry Forshaw
