The $399 electronic book device will allow downloads of more than 90,000 book titles, blogs, magazines and newspapers. More than four months after Amazon.com released the Kindle, no one is sure whether the latest e-book reader is really hot, or not. But publishers believe that the Kindle has helped, if not revolutionized, the tiny electronic market. (AP Photo/Amazon.com,File)

Public Library Online offers readers online access to a range of fiction and non-fiction books via your local library.

There are no complicated downloads or decisions on which e-reader device to buy, simply access the books using any internet enabled device either in the library, remotely or from home.

You can browse the shelves and enjoy added extras such as reading group guides, reviews and more.

Library members can access Public Library Online from any internet-connected device for free. Non-members can access Public Library Online for free from computers within any Angus library.

It’s easy and free to join the library and anyone who lives, studies or works in Angus can become a member at any time. Just take two forms of identification - one must show your current address and one must show your signature. You’ll find contact details for all libraries on the Angus Council website.

As this service is a trial, library staff are keen to hear feedback from users to help decide whether to purchase the service for Angus. A short online survey is available and readers are encouraged to send in their views.
