AN exciting development for all is that an e-book library subscription service is being launched by the Department of Arts and Culture in KZN. The service is currently being piloted in Empangeni and Umhlali libraries as well as among KZN DAC employees.

The project will benefit pupils and teachers as they will have unlimited access to library material, promoting a culture of reading and improving learning as well as teaching. The department will embark on a provincial awareness campaign to educate communities about the service.

Interested parties will have to register to become library cardholders before being loaded onto the system as e-book readers.

Currently library members have two weeks to read a borrowed book before it automatically returns to the list of available books on the service. The paperless service means there will be no need for overdue notices or fines. E-book membership will be managed by the department’s library service’s unit.
