Delve into the digital eBook library for chance to win an iPad

An iPad is on offer for digital library customers in a bid to raise awareness of North Yorkshire’s vast eBook collection.

The county’s library service holds around 21,000 eBooks, with more than 4,000 users making regular use of the collection.

During October, all eBook borrowers will be entered into a prize draw to win an iPad, donated by eBook supplier BorrowBox.

The giveaway will coincide with Get Online Week, which runs from October 17 to 23 and showcases the digital offer at libraries – from IT support to coding.

Library users will also be encouraged to enter the iPad giveaway during Libraries Week, which aims to highlight the central role that libraries play in supporting lifelong learning.

Executive member for libraries, Cllr Greg White, said: “Many people don’t realise the huge range of digital resources that libraries have to offer. Every library member has access to thousands of eBooks, digital audiobooks, e-comics and e-graphic novels for free.

“We want to use this opportunity to raise awareness of our digital offer. The lucky winner will be able to use their new iPad to easily access our eBook collection.”

Each eBook borrower has a maximum of five entries. Find out more about the competition.
