The summer holidays are just around the corner, and maybe you're finding yourself low on reading materials....

What are you to do with all your spare time?

Today we are happy to show you where you can access free e-books, audio-books, comics, magazines and newspapers from your desktop, laptop, tablet or mobile devices for free.


Croydon Library

Croydon library offers thousands of free e-books, audio-books, comics, magazines and newspapers to their members of the library. Not a member yet? No problem! It's super easy and free to sign up. 

How to sign up

Step 1. Students need to get parent/guardians approval! You'll need their help to help you finish the signing up.

Step 2. Have a quick read through the different membership options, as they are some differences between children's, teens and adult memberships.

Step 3. Head to the joining page and select your local library (the closest to Oasis Arena is Ashburton).

Step 4. Fill in the form with your parent/guardian and then press 'Create Account.' 

All done! You can now use your new membership number and the pin you set to access thousands of free books, e-books, audiobooks, comics, magazines and more!

All of these services have apps that you can download from your app/game store. After downloading, select Croydon or LCC as your library, and enter your library card or pin as requested.
