New from Libraries West

If you have always thought about doing some family history research but never got around to it, now is the perfect time., which has previously only been available in libraries, is now available for you to use at home. You just have to log in to Libraries West in the normal way and then you click on to the blue words “Access to Ancestry Library Edition” to open the software. There are hours of fun to be had here!

Underneath this you will see that Libraries West is also offering access to until 15 May. If you enjoy classical music, opera or ballet this channel has some amazing content.

Of course if you have never used the Libraries West e-services this won’t mean much to you. There couldn’t be a better time to start!

Audio books, e-books and magazine…. there is endless free material to read and listen to at home, and it is continually being updated.

If you aren’t a library member at present it doesn’t matter. You can join online at the Libraries West website and will be given a 3 month temporary membership whilst libraries remain closed. Simple!
