New temporary eMembership at Bathurst Library

Not a member of Bathurst Library? Residents in the Bathurst region can now become temporary eMembers for three months. The library’s free eLibrary will prove invaluable to residents during this time as it offers thousands of eBooks, eAudiobooks and eMagazines that can be downloaded to your smartphone, tablet or computer. 

Temporary eMembers will have access to extensive online collections, including eLibrary apps, Kanopy film streaming, eResearch resources (such as Encyclopedia Britannica and National Geographic Virtual Library) and Kids Online that includes Story Box Library, online learning games, coding and more. 

Current Bathurst Library members can already access these resources with their membership number and password. However, a new eMembership has been introduced so more people can join the library and obtain access to this wide range of eResources. 

“Simply go to their website to join up and they will email you a member confirmation and details on how to get started with the eLibrary,” says Patou Clerc, Manager Library Services. “This will be a temporary membership but it can be easily transferred to a permanent membership when the library doors open again.” 

For more information you can visit or call the library on 6333 6281.
