Free eBooks from Powys Libraries

eBooks for Wales

Borrow eBooks from the comfort of your own home, 24 hours a day!

If you are a member of Powys Library Service, you can borrow eBooks from the comfort of your own home, using our free service, eBooks for Wales.

There are lots of titles to choose from, from current best sellers to self help books, classic fiction to cookery books. There are also eBooks for children.

  • To use the eBook service you must be a member of Powys Library Service. Click here for information on how to join.
  • First time users also need to register on the eBook site. Click here to register for eBooks. You will need your library card number, and you will create a PIN when you register.
  • (Unfortunately Kindle e-Readers are not able to access library ebooks. This is because Amazon devices do not support library-loaned material. Kindle Fire devices may be able to access library ebooks by installing the Bluefire App, but Amazon do not make this App available in their App store, as Kindle devices are primarily intended to access Amazon's own ebook service.)


How does it work?

  • Download ebooks to your PC, and then transfer them to your eReader. iPhone, iPad, Android and Kindle Fire users can download books directly to their devices. For a step-by-step guide to downloading your first ebook, click here.
  • Once you have registered, you can login to the eBooks site using your library card number and the PIN number you created when you registered on the site.
  • You can borrow up to 4 books at a time, and each download is available for up to three weeks.
  • There is no charge to borrow our ebooks. The books will automatically disappear from your device at the end of the loan period.
  • If the book you want is out on loan, you can reserve it free of charge. You will be notified when it is available for you to download.

eBooks for Wales is funded by the Welsh Assembly Government and a consortium of 14 public library authorities in Wales, including Powys.
