Edinburgh Libraries want everyone to know that they can have instant access to free online library services without even having a library card.

If you would benefit from free access to ebooks, audiobooks and magazines, but aren’t a member of the library, read on.

This New Year you can get free instant access to Edinburgh Libraries Libby service without a library card. Thousands of best-selling titles for adults, teens and children are available to read on your phone, tablet or computer. It’s a good way to make the most of your electronic devices and to save money.

No library card? No problem. For a month from 16 January if you are over 16 years old you can sign up for an Instant digital card in seconds. All you need is a mobile phone number and the access code – Library2go. To find out how to get started go to www.edinburgh.gov.uk/IDC

The Instant digital card gives you access to Libby for three months. However, you can keep on using the service for free by joining the library and receiving a permanent membership card. Join online through www.edinburgh.gov.uk/joinourlibrary

Contact informationdigital@edinburgh.gov.uk if you have any questions about the library’s downloadable services.
