Central West Libraries has ramped up local access to online digital content in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak to help locals stay entertained through self-isolation and social distancing measures in place across the State. With the launch of an innovative new platform indyreads, Canowindra can now access over 11,000 new ebooks and audiobooks from home, for free.
Developed by the State Library of NSW, indyreads gives members 24/7 access to a range of eBooks, including fiction titles by well-known and popular authors, poetry collections, cookbooks, educational books, lo- cal studies resources and much more.
“With indyreads library members can get a lot more variety with something for every reader – from high quality self-published works by local writers to international award-winning authors, modern classics, and even books in languages other than English,” says Mr Ross Balharrie, indyreads project coordinator, State Library of NSW.
According to Central West Libraries Man- ager Jan Richards “indyreads is a great addition to our library collection. I am particularly enjoying being able to access such a wealth of fiction by Australian authors”.
