Free Online Resources Available from Pembrokeshire Libraries

Libraries across Pembrokeshire might be closed currently, but the service is always open with a fantastic range of online resources.

The 24/7 e-Library provides library members with free access to thousands of e-books, e-audio books, e-magazines and much, much more!

Browse a huge selection of popular e-book and e-audio book titles, and download them straight to your device to enjoy at home with BorrowBox.

Members can choose from a variety of fiction and non-fiction categories, for both adults and children, as well as searching for the newest releases, most popular downloads and local interest titles.

BorrowBox continues to be a huge hit with customers, with 1,413 e-book loans and 1,555 e-audio book loans recorded in April alone.

Looking for craft, decorating or baking inspiration while at home? Hundreds of popular magazine titles are available to download for free from RBdigital.

The e-Library also has thousands of e-comics to explore, from Disney and Marvel classics to Halo and Hellboy. 

The popular Ancestry Library Edition, normally only available at local libraries, has now been made available to members at home during the current closures.

ProQuest have enhanced access to the popular resource for a limited period, so there’s never been a better time to research your family tree.

Non-members can access the 24/7 e-Library by joining online with a temporary membership to Pembrokeshire Libraries.

Go to www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk/libraries-and-culture and select ‘Join the Library’, then complete the online form to receive a temporary library number, which will need to be activated via the e-mail link provided.

Once libraries reopen to the public, customers who joined online can visit their local library with their temporary library number and a form of identification to obtain full membership, and enjoy all that Pembrokeshire Libraries have to offer.

To access the 24/7 e-Library, log on to www.pembrokeshire.gov.uk/libraries-and-culture and select ‘24/7 e-Library’.
