Gateshead Libraries eBooks service is FREE! All you need is your Gateshead Libraries ticket and PIN. If you do not know your PIN, please contact your local library. You can download up to six books for a maximum period of 21 days.
eBooks are automatically deleted from your eReader at the end of the loan period so you don’t need to worry about overdue charges.
eBooks are compatible with most eReaders. However, the service is not compatible with Amazon’s Kindle. This is because Amazon does not support digital rights management (DRM) on eBooks. DRM is required by publishers who sell their books to libraries and it’s a problem currently faced by all library authorities in the UK. The service should be compatible with the Kindle Fire tablet, though you may have to download a suitable app first e.g. Bluefire Reader app.
