The round-the-clock eBook service is free and is designed to be used by library members outside the library. Due to licensing restrictions, this service is available only to members who live or work in Birmingham. You can download fiction, non-fiction and children's books to an e-reader, mobile phone, PC, or tablet PC. You will need a full library card to create your account. Sign in with the usual library card login - without spaces and missing off the last two numbers or letters.
