  • How do you access these great services. There are several ways of accessing this free service. There is a tab on the homepage of the RRL website. This directs you to a webpage that lists the 2 platforms.
  • The titles available for download are also accessible through the library’s catalogue.There is a tab down the left hand side listing Bolinda and Wheeler – this will take you to the respective company’s home pages.Or you can search the library catalogue – each eAudiobook and eBook have entries in the catalogue. If you want to see if we hold a specific title or author – this is the best way to search.
  • As you can see there is a direct link to the title to the eBook or eAudiobook. Here I searched for Zac Power. Within thge search results I can see that we have an eAudiobook and an eBook available.
