It’s your library, so get e-Reading at Eastbourne

Residents are being encouraged to Get e-Reading at Eastbourne Library on Thursday 6 June, 2013.

Between 2pm and 4pm an expert from the RNIB (Royal National Institute of the Blind) will be giving a free talk and demonstration about eBooks, eBook Readers and downloading audio books.

The Get e-Reading event is part of Make a Noise in Libraries Fortnight, the RNIB’s annual campaign to bring public libraries and blind and partially sighted people together to improve access to books and information.

There will also be a selection of the latest audio and large print books and “reminiscence resources” – objects which help to re-awaken people’s memories of their experiences and lives – available at the event.

Councillor Chris Dowling, East Sussex County Council’s Lead Member for Community Services, said: “Reading and listening to stories is a vital life skill that contributes to health and wellbeing, especially for blind and partially sighted people; and let’s not forgot it’s their library too.”
